Description

The African American Symposium on Disabilities has been a one-day conference providing culturally relevant information and resources to self-advocates, families and professionals. What started as an Arizona DD Network and Independent Living Center collaboration, has grown to include individuals, local organizations, and state agencies related to disability and from the greater community. The poster will discuss its humble beginnings, strategies to engaging underserved populations, measuring success, and national expansion.
