Keys to Unlocking a Future of Opportunity and Inclusion
The 15th Annual “VIRTUAL” Developmental Disabilities Public Policy Conference inspires, educates, and empowers attendees to become advocates for Californians with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). The conference is presented by The Arc of California, Easterseals and United Cerebral Palsy. Each year, the conference features nationally known speakers who have been trailblazers for promoting policies that improve the disability system, enabling people with IDD to live inclusively in their communities. Attendees include governmental officials, and leaders within the IDD community, including self-advocates, family members, support professionals, and academies. This year, every attendee will receive a program and welcome box mailed to them in advance of the conference and is automatically entered into daily drawings for prizes. We hope each attendee will walk away with a deeper understanding of the current public policy reality for the disability system, and a renewed sense of empowerment to design a future together where every person has an opportunity to live their best life.
