Maryland State Arts Council #ADA 30
Video Description: Dominique, a White Italian woman is wearing wayfarers glasses and gold Sicily shaped hoop earrings. She has on a white lace headband, her dark brown hair in a bun, and a white top. She is in the video; it is auto captioned. She is discussing what the 30th Anniversary ADA and Disability Justice means to her.
I had the fantastic opportunity of being involved with the Maryland State Arts Council video project for their ADA 30 Celebration. Here’s my video!
What a great way to represent our local Eastern Shore community, as well as Salisbury too! Thank you to the Maryland State Arts Council for including me in their ADA 30 Celebration.
Salisbury, Maryland and Eastern Shore Maryland Advocate
Something that I’m extremely passionate about is making sure that my local community and the Eastern Shore of Maryland is represented in conversations of disability advocacy. Making sure that disability is represented in our local community! Rural advocacy is important. Not just for me, but for all disabled people!
Salisbury, Maryland is becoming known for its ability to adapt— and create positive changes.
I love what it’s doing for the disability community. As a proud Salisbury resident, my goal is to always foster more access and education.
Mayor’s Award for Citizen’s Services
“Yesterday City officials and community leaders gathered to give community advocate Dominique Sessa a surprise Christmas parade and present her with the only Mayor’s Award for Citizen Service to be awarded for the year 2020.
At the beginning of the pandemic, back in early Spring, our friend Dom Sessa led efforts to make and distribute thousands of high-quality masks to those in need of personal protective equipment. Dom has been instrumental in helping those in need around her as an active member of Lower Shore Vulnerable Populations Task Force. She manages all of this while quarantined to her home since February due to being high-risk because of a genetic neuromuscular disorder.” City of Salisbury, MD
#KindSBY: Kindness Commissioner
I love being a Kindness Commissioner for Kind SBY. If you ask me what I love doing or what my passion is, I think I would easily say it’s helping people or making the world better. My fellow Commissioners encompass that.
The love, passion and kindness that goes into Kind SBY is why it’s so close to my heart. The passion that goes into making SBY a more loving, beautiful community is beautiful.
Volunteer Life During COVID-19:
In March of 2020, I organized a PPE drive called “Delmarva COVID Crafters.” We now are a crafting club for charity called “Delmarva Crafters.” We craft for charity, are inclusive of adaptive crafting, and help support our local underserved community. Our desire is for everyone to be safe, cared for, and supported during a pandemic— and post pandemic. Adaptive PPE is a passion of mine. Everyone deserves designs that improves their lives– and makes impacts. It continues to be something that I advocate and push forward for. I am so grateful that the pandemic has allowed me to craft something meaningful and lasting!
