Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

It is imperative that we continue the discussion of how current policies and practices can inhibit full inclusion of marginalized groups in schools, communities and workplaces. Though the viewpoint of parents is often devalued and dismissed, they remain staunch supporters of equality. Parents have always been at the forefront of efforts to ensure equitable access to resources and supports that are available to the public. When equipped with knowledge of research-based best practices, parents can become powerful advocates, partners in policy-making and fully-informed, engaged citizens adept at holding government officials and community leaders accountable.
