Coming Soon! AUCD Launches a New Podcast

September 22, 2021

We are proud to announce the upcoming arrival of AUCD's new podcast-- AUCD Network Narratives: Real Stories from Our Members.

About the Podcast:

The podcast shares real stories from network members who are working to change systems and structures that impact people with disabilities. Each AUCD Network Narratives episode features a conversation about experiences at a LEND, UCEDD, or IDDRC, especially highlighting emerging leaders and the voices of BIPOC disabled people and their families. We aim to energize AUCD network members to take action in their own communities.

This first season focuses on network members promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion and reducing disparities for Black and brown disabled people.

We are joined by podcast host, Jeiri Flores, an advocacy specialist at the Strong Center for Developmental Disabilities and co-chair of the Council on Leadership and Advocacy (COLA). Jeiri is joined by guests from across the network as they tell their stories.
