Comedian Nina G. is Raising Funds for YO! Disabled & Proud June 29th, 2015

She's at it again!  Nina G, America’s only female stuttering stand up comedian, author and professional speaker. is happy to announce her new collaboration with YO! Disabled and Proud, a project of the California Foundation for Independent Living Centers. 

Nina’s relationship started with YO! Disabled & Proud started many years ago when she was the keynote speaker at the YO! Anti-Bullying, "Own My Power Freedom from Bullying" Community Organizing Summit.  She was impressed by the emphasis on fostering activism and giving youth with disabilities a voice and tools to build their leadership skills.  Since then she has continued to collaborate with YO! and is now doing a 6 month stretch to raise funds for the program. 

Every six months Nina will be choosing a new organization to donate a portion of her professional speaking fees as well as CD and book online sales to worthy nonprofit organizations.  The organizations Nina chooses will also be featured on her social media outlets to increase their visibility .  The first organization selected is YO! Disabled and Proud.  YO! connects, organizes and educates youth with disabilities ages 16-28 throughout California. It provides leadership opportunities, training for community organizing, peer networks, internships and resource referrals for youth in transition.
