In Virginia, 11% of the population has a disability, and many barriers exist for this community as they seek opportunities for employment, post-secondary education, financial independence, transportation, and housing. 

Each year, since 2017, the VMHC has partnered with the Next Move Program to present capABLE—an exhibition featuring the remarkable stories of young adults with diverse abilities and demonstrates how our entire community thrives when the disability community is included. 

In recognition of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, Sr. Director for Curatorial Affairs, Andrew Talkov, will be joined by Next Move Program Executive Director, Elizabeth Redford, and capABLE model, Ryann Kress, to discuss the importance of including people with diverse abilities in the historical narrative in this panel on October 9, 2020.

The Next Move Program is a Richmond-based nonprofit that provides job training and related education to young adults with disabilities.
