Ask Me; Don’t Assume

Ask Me; Don’t Assume

Rising Flame’s unique event series Ask Me; Don’t Assume is a personal, interactive, and intimate event which creates a safe and open space for people to engage with persons with disabilities and other diversities without hesitation, fear, inhibitions or political correctness. We believe open conversations and awareness are the first steps to social inclusion.

Through this series of small and personal events, we have reached 105 people in person, most of them youth.
