Self-Advocates Will "Reunite" at the 2023 Florida Self-Advocacy Conference in August
Save the Date to let your voice be heard at "Reunited: the 2023 Florida Self-Advocacy Conference," slated for August 18-20 in Orlando.
Join the largest group of self-advocates, allies, and stakeholders in Florida, gathering with the specific vision to grow the influence of the self-advocacy movement in the Sunshine State. Reunited will be held at the Rosen Plaza Hotel in Orlando, August 18-20, 2023.
The conference is facilitated by the FL SAND Fellows working with Florida Self-Advocates Network'D (FL SAND) members as key advisors and sponsor stewards. This conference encourages self-advocate presenters and a call for break-out session proposals will be available soon.
"Reunited" conveys the excitement and energy self-advocates feel about getting back together in person after several years of Zoom meetings and a hybrid conference in 2021. To get an idea of what "Reunited" will be like, check out all the activities of the 2021 conference here.
All self-advocates, their supporters, and allies in Florida are invited to attend the conference, regardless of their affiliation with FL SAND. Businesses and other partners interested in sponsoring and exhibiting at the conference should email firstname.lastname@example.org. "Reunited" sponsor materials will be available soon.
The FL SAND Fellows are funded by a contract with the Florida Developmental Disabilities Council to provide training and technical assistance to FL SAND. FL SAND is a network of grassroots self-advocacy groups that operate in local communities around the state. It exists to support local advocacy efforts and provide a united voice for statewide issues and topics that are important to self-advocates and all persons with disabilities in Florida. FL SAND's 15 local groups are all led by self-advocates and operate independently of provider organizations.
Registration will open later in the spring. Check back for updates on the 2023 conference here at FSACentral.org or at FLSAND.org.
