More about Larry and Tracy

Get up close and personal with Larry Bissonnette, Tracy Thresher, Harvey Lavoy, and Pascal Cheng from the film “Wretches and Jabberer’s”. Learn about their journey of advocacy for people without a voice. It’s a life changing documentary that tugs at the core of communication, intelligence, and autism. The film is available on Itunes, Netflix, and Amazon. It is suggested that you view the film before going to the “More Like You Than Not” event hosted by CSUN NSSLHA on the CSUN CAMPUS. The night will include clips from the film, and presentations from both Larry and Tracy, followed by a question and answers portion. We will also be holding a silent auction and bake sale at the event (all proceeds go to the event costs)! Families, friends, students, faculty, and professionals are all welcome! In the words of Tracy a big goal of their journey was to “move peoples knowledge of disability to a positive place”. Together we can build awareness about this very important topic!
