The monthly Disability Power Day brings people with disabilities together around self-advocacy, leadership development and specific issues facing the disability community. Disability Power Day features a morning session, a social lunch, and an afternoon activity. Each month has new sessions lead by experts in that area but every month follows the same daily schedule. Disability Power Day takes place on the 2nd Thursday and the 2nd Friday of the month. Thursdays and Fridays have exactly the same schedule, so only sign up for one. Attendance for each day is capped at 40, sign up early.
Disability Power Day came about from feedback following the 2017 Minnesota State Self-Advocacy Conference. Attendees loved the opportunity to meet people from other self-advocacy groups and they loved the workshops. People loved it so much we decided to launch a monthly mini conference which we call Disability Power Day. It’s free of cost but donations are always welcome.
