MN State Self-Advocacy Conference

_J0A3852

Check out the conference website for details: www.conference.selfadvocacy.org

Every other year ACT and the Conference Planning Committee organizations put on a two-day state self-advocacy conference. We’ve been doing it since 2000. It’s a lot of fun. Typically 400-500 self-advocates and allies attend to make friends, learn about self-advocacy issues, and become connected to the larger self-advocacy movement.

What makes this conference unique is its “nothing about us without us” approach. Two-thirds of the sessions will be led or co-led by self-advocates. What’s more, ACT convenes a planning committee of self-advocates and allies from several organizations. This committee helps make all decisions about the conference.

The next conference is spring 2019. We need your help to make it great!
