This year, we are excited to honor Larkin O’Leary with our Silver Buckle Award. Larkin co-founded the Common Ground Society, a Sonoma County-based nonprofit organization whose team is dedicated to educating and empowering our community to be more compassionate, accepting, and inclusive of people with disabilities.

Larkin and her team at Common Ground Society not only share the stories of their lives to educate and empower the community to be more compassionate, accepting, and inclusive of people with disabilities, but they also support families who receive any life changing diagnosis for their child through meaningful connections and local support.

Join us to hear the story of the Common Ground Society and celebrate Larkin for the work she’s doing to help others live a life without barriers!
