Engaging Communities in Improving Outcomes for Individuals with Disabilities – Philadelphia
May 2 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm
About the Workshop
A “community conversation” is a unique, asset-based approach for engaging a cross-section of diverse citizens—including people from both within and (especially) beyond the service system—in making local changes that enhance the lives of individuals with disabilities. This workshop will focus on the practice and power of this approach to spurring community-level changes in areas as diverse as integrated employment, inclusive education, community participation, independent living, and congregational inclusion. Learn a practical and creative approach for launching local movements that invite ordinary citizens (not just the “usual suspects”) to be part of expanding opportunities and supports for community members with disabilities.
