Title: Our Faith Foundations for Advocacy

Description: Faith is important. Everyone defines faith in different ways and decides what kind of advocacy they want to be involved in. Self-determination is important--you are in control of your life; no one decides for you. This session explores the connections between our own faith traditions and our commitment to advocacy. Register HERE.

Presenters: Liz Weintraub, Senior Advocacy Specialist and Host of Tuesdays With Liz: Disability Policy For All!, Association For University Centers On Disabilities (AUCD), and Laura Robb, Writer, Blogger, http://lauracrobb.com/, The Faith Inclusion Network of Hampton Roads, Virginia.
