California Disability Advocacy Conference

Discovering the Next Frontier; Charting Your Path Forward

California Disability Advocacy Conference Save-the-Date postcard

The 16th Annual “VIRTUAL” California Disability Advocacy 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 individuals with disabilities, their families and support staff, service providers and regional center employees, governmental officials, educators, and other leaders and advocates within the IDD community. We hope each attendee will walk away with a deeper understanding of the current disability system outlook, and a renewed sense of empowerment to design a future together where every person has an opportunity to live their best life.
