The L’Arche International community has taken a beautiful initiative to counter the tendency, present in all cultures, to view people with intellectual disabilities that they are the undesirables. To change this injustice they have started the web series, “As I Am”, as
“an invitation to imagine the world differently and to rejoice in who you are as you are”.
This third “As I Am” story is that of Bogdan Senyk, from L’Arche Ukraine, who grew up under a government that denied his existence. In this episode, he explains his method of civil resistance: joy.
