Hi Donors, On Sunday, May 15th over 60 stutterers gathered at the Atlantic Acting School in Chelsea for a day of lively discussion about our See More

EVENT DATE May 15, 2016

THE STORY:

People who stutter come from all walks of life. But many of us have one thing in common: We grew up feeling broken – and in need of a fix.

The NYC Chapters of the National Stuttering Association firmly believe that stuttering is okay. We know that when people who stutter come together, great things happen. Our volunteer-run support groups throughout the city are always free to the public.

On Sunday, May 15th, in an effort to nurture our thriving New York-area community, we will hold our FIRST annual conference in the city. It will be a day to support, educate, and empower stutterers as we explore the "Past, Present, and Future of Stuttering" together. But we cannot do it without your help.

Our group is entirely volunteer-run and our events are low cost because we believe that support and empowerment should be accessible to all. Anything you can donate will go a long way toward helping people who stutter.

Our goal is to raise $1,000 to cover our costs for the day, which include event space, lunch for attendees, projector rental, travel fees for guest speakers, and waiver of entry fees for those who demonstrate financial hardship. 100% of additional funds raised will go toward future events. On behalf of the NYC National Stuttering Association chapter leaders, members, and stutterers all over, we thank you!!!
