2021 African American Conference on Disabilities

The 2021 African American Conference on Disabilities is the premiere comprehensive disability conference in the United States that addresses the intersection between race and disabilities. 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. This year’s virtual conference attendees came 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.

Our first-ever virtual conference featured 3 unique sessions and 8 workshops all with an emphasis on disabilities, held throughout the month of February, and had over 11,000 attendees on Zoom and Facebook Live.
