Here's the link to the program and lyrics!
Acceptance of the bodies we have can be struggle, between visible and invisible disabilities, our culture's fixation on weight, and the pressures we face from others and ourselves. Having been told she would never walk, Misha Walker started the Dream Walker Project to travel all over the world from her home in Peru to connect with other families affected by arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC), a rare joint condition that gives Misha her unique body.
As the International Ambassador for a non-profit dedicated to AMC around the world, Misha has become the face of support and hope for hundreds of individuals and families affected by this condition. And Misha walked The Real Catwalk in London as part of model Khrystyana Kazakova's runway show to normalize and celebrate different bodies. Misha will share her body acceptance journey with us. She is active on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and most recently, TikTok.
The Zoom "doors" will open at 10:30, so folks can chat in breakout rooms with others before the assembly starts at 11. We will also use breakout rooms after the assembly so you can talk to the speaker, or chat with your fellow Earthlings until at least 1 PM, so please feel free to stay and chat in small groups!
The Zoom link and some pointers are below.
You won't need to RSVP with Zoom first, just use this link!

If you are new to Zoom, please watch this handy video about how to join a meeting:
Quick suggestions for Zoom:
Use your headphones instead of the computer's/phone's speakers; it'll make hearing you easier when we break out into little chat groups.
If possible, please enable your video feed so we can see you! The speakers will then be able to see your beautiful faces and reactions, and it'll feel more like we are in person. If you have to walk away from or move your camera, please disable it until you get back. And yes, of course we want to see your cats.
You'll be muted right when you get to the meeting, but worry not, there will be smaller groups during and after the assembly that you can use to talk to your fellow Earthlings.
In the corner of the box with your face in it, you can choose to hide yourself from your view, so you won't find looking at yourself so distracting. Also, it'll make more space on your screen to see others.
You may (but don't have to) RSVP on Meetup.
We can't wait to see you all!
