Event description

Description

Join other brokerage customers from around the Portland area for a day of learning, collaboration, and advocacy. Lead by two local self-advocacy groups, Advocates Unite!, aims to bring together indiviudals who are committed to sharing their stories, insight, and working with others to see postive change. We hope that each attendant leaves the day with a renewed sense of the power of self-advocacy, the belief that their voice was heard and their priorities will be included in the next year's advocacy efforts, and with tangible next steps for continued involvement in the Portland self-advocacy movement.

Our tentative schedule for the day includes:

  • 9:30 - Registration (Coffee and light breakfast items provided)
  • 10:00 - Goals for the day and introductions
  • 10:30 - First step of determining advocacy priorities
  • 11:00 - Breakout Groups on Self Advocacy History in Oregon
  • 12:00 - Lunch and speaker (Lunch is provided)
  • 12:30 - Finalizing shared priority areas though a voting process
  • 12:50 - Breakout Groups on next steps for ongoing advocacy
  • 2:00 - Conference Ends
