Event description
The FIN Community for ALL (C4A) Conference will provide resources and presentations to support your congregations' inclusive efforts.

About this Event

One of the biggest challenges and needs for individuals and families affected by disability is finding inclusive, strong communities where they can belong and thrive. Please join the Faith Inclusion Network community as we come together to learn how to strengthen communities in congregations, learn from self-advocates and share the most recent knowledge of inclusion in faith communities and congregations, including how faith communities have made adjustments through the Covid-19 Pandemic.

This year's conference will include both an in-person option for a limited number of people at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church, Norfolk and a virtual option for wherever you live. You may also be interested in connecting with one of the following groups who will be C4A Community Host Groups around the country.

(Listing of Community Host Groups and contact information coming soon)

Our in-person gathering at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in Norfolk, VA will be limited to 75 total people, including our volunteers. We ask that if you are have registed and are in need of accommodations such as ASL Interpretation, that you please contact us at faithinclusionnetwork@gmail.com by January 26. All parts of the building are wheelchair accessible and videos presented will be captioned.

This year’s conference, Community for ALL will also kick off the second annual Community for ALL Interfaith Disability Inclusion Weekend. In addition to attending the conference in person or virtually, please consider having your congregation participate in C4A weekend.
