WREN to Receive Adaptable Award from Able SC

Dec 1, 2020

Able South Carolina will present the Women’s Rights and Empowerment Network with the Adaptable Award.  Able SC’s annual Fundable event will be online this year on December 4th from 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm.  Tickets are available now, click here to purchase your ticket. Ann Warner, WREN CEO, and Melissa Moore our Lowcountry Manager will virtually accept the award on WREN’s behalf.

WREN is being recognized for the Be the Voice project that concluded in early 2020. This project included groups (story circles) of people from the Upstate, Midlands, and Lowcountry who shared their stories about access to reproductive healthcare and education.  The story circles were comprised of LGBTQ+ youth, Latinx students, people with disabilities, healthcare providers, and parents.

Watch the video below to learn more about the project and what we learned.

We will work each day to be more accessible and inclusive to individuals with disabilities. As we grow, we hope to continue fighting for the health, economic well-being, and rights of all people.
