Wednesday, February 23, 2022 (Opening Ceremony)
Thursday, February 24, 2022 (Advocacy Day)
12:00pm – 3:00pm
Unite with thousands of compassionate community members in fighting the societal stigma surrounding individuals with disabilities. There is strength in numbers. Together, we can make a powerful impact – advancing the public policies that support the health and well-being of those with disabilities in our hometowns and nationwide.
Together, we’ll learn about promoting national legislation and implementing grassroots strategies that will we hope will help lift millions of people with disabilities out of poverty and receive the tools and coaching to advocate for disability rights in real-time. We’ll take concrete action at this event – individually yet together.
Be sure to tune in at 12:00pm CST on February 24 for the “Barriers to Inclusion: Understanding and Addressing the Challenges” panel, where JFS CEO Cathy Barker will serve as a panelist.
