Join us as we welcome our first presenter for the 2023 SPEAK Lecture Series- DJ Savarese!
DJ is a public speaker, writer, and activist who works to make literacy-based education, communication, and inclusive lives a reality for all nontraditionally speaking people through artful advocacy, teaching, and community organizing. A 2017-19 OSF Human Rights Initiative Youth Fellow alum, he is also the co-producer of the Peabody award-winning, Emmy-nominated documentary Deej: Inclusion Shouldn’t be a Lottery, which unearths discrepancies between insider and outsider perspectives of his lived experience as an alternatively-communicating autistic person. DJ's most recent poetry collection is Swoon, which has been nominated for a Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize and whose title poem is a Pushcart Prize nominee.
