The SoCal TAA chapter puts on a yearly awareness walk located in the City of Long beach at Heartwell Park. The event is hosted with local girl scout Troop #4183. The city recognized the group with a proclamation that May 20th (or as close as we can get) is Tourette Awareness Day in Long Beach. This date also falls within National Tourette Awareness month. Its goal is to bring families and friends with TS together, raise awareness, and foster tolerance and support for those with TS. All are welcome!
ArtisTIC Expressions is a one day Tourette Syndrome “festival” where young artists with TS within our Southern California TAA community are able to showcase their talents in a supportive and judgement-free environment. Since this event was first organized by our very own Rhianna Wicken 4 years ago, the event has regularly featured performances by musicians, actors, creative writers, cinematographers, illustrators, animators, and everything in between.
