About AUCD2018

The AUCD2018 Conference brings people together to remember, celebrate, and remind others that all human beings have value, and a right to be included in their communities. In November we will share and learn from one another about ways to create opportunity, access, and equity in education, housing, employment, healthcare, faith communities, transportation, activities, and all aspects of community living. Join us at AUCD2018 as we come together, celebrate our achievements, and to recharge our commitment to achieving inclusive communities!
