2023 African American Conference on Disabilities

Register for the Virtual Seminar on Feb 8 and 9 HERE!

The Arizona Center for Disability Law (ACDL) and its partners are excited to announce the 12th Annual African American Conference on Disabilities (AACD) will return in-person for 2023.

As a preview to the in-person conference in June, a virtual seminar will kick off during the month of February in honor of Black History Month.

There is a $15.00 registration fee for the 2-day conference that covers all four sessions. This fee will help pay for scholarships for families to attend the in-person conference on June 16, 2023.

Registration is now open for the preview sessions on Eventbrite. You may choose to attend one or all sessions for the same $15.00 registration fee. You only need to register once and the link works for all four sessions.

The AACD is the premier comprehensive disability conference in the United States that addresses the intersection between race and disability. The conference examines avenues for self-advocacy to ensure the effective provision of services, resources, and enforcement of civil rights in the African American and disability communities. In the past several years, over 15,000 virtual attendees have come from all across Arizona, almost every state in the U.S., U.S. Virgin Islands, Canada, Africa, and Europe to learn and ask questions on a wide range of disability issues.
