On April 6, ABC’s What Would You Do? program featured an emotional segment about stuttering and bullying. Alina, an actress who stutters and member of Our Time Theatre Company, portrayed a girl who was in line at an ice cream parlour. She was ridiculed by other patrons while she was giving her order. The target of the segment, a courageous woman named Whitney (not an actor), stepped in on her behalf and defended Alina against the bullies.
Why are we rehashing the program for you? Because on June 21st at 8:30pm Eastern (Toronto, New York), Stutter Social is hosting a Hangout on Air, reuniting both Alina and Whitney in a live Q+A Hangout!
Did we say live? Yes we did. Recently, Google Plus launched its Hangouts On Air feature, enabling us to broadcast our Hangouts live on YouTube.
So, join us, Alina and Whitney if you're interested! But please note the Hangout will run on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Here's a video summarizing ABC's segment. We hope to see you in the Hangout!
