The Moving Forward Conference & Self-Advocate Summit 2021
A Virtual Event: Wednesdays June 9, 16, 23, 30
The world we knew just a year ago no longer exists. People with disabilities, providers and families who provide support, and others have had to adjust to the new way of living, working, and making ends meet with the impact of a public health crisis. Yet the community has remained resilient and have become creative in their advocacy and more collaborative in getting through daily routines.
Conference Theme | Moving Forward Together: Innovation, Advocacy and Collaboration
Topics will include:
- Creative strategies on coping with isolation during a pandemic;
- How self-advocacy can empower people with disabilities to reclaim access and independence;
- How policies have affected support programs; and
- The importance of employment and inclusion during a pandemic.
