Bryan Dooley to Lead CPPS ChangeMaker Chat Tuesday


Bryan Dooley ’13 will present a ChangeMaker Chat 6-7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 25, in the Center for Principled Problem Solving, 126 King Hall.

His chat is titled “Actions speak louder than flags: Why I think it's important to demonstrate our values, rather than bragging about them.”

Bryan is a well-recognized advocate for people with disabilities as well as a journalist and columnist with Camel City Dispatch. He writes a twice-weekly blog, “Observations from Below,” for the Huffington Post and sits on the board of The Adaptables Center for Independent Living in Winston-Salem and the non-profit organization Disability Rights North Carolina.

Bryan began advocating from a young age, earning state and national awards by high school, including the “Yes I Can” award in assistive technology from the Council for Exceptional Children and the Matthew Graziadei Achievement Award. He majored in history at Guilford, studying the history of the disability rights movement. He wrote for The Guilfordian and served in several leadership positions including as a Diversity Coordinator and a PPS Scholar.

Refreshments will be served at the ChangeMaker Chat. Contact Mark Justad at justadmj@guilford.edu for more information about the ChangeMaker Grants Program.
