Through a grant from the Nevada Statewide Independent Living Council, we had the extreme privilege of sending two students and two educators to the National Council on Independent Living conference, held the last week of July, 2022. While in Washington D.C., they attended a variety of workshops, addressing such important topics as independent living, advocacy, assistive technology and access in general.
In between sessions, they had a chance to explore our nation's capital. We'll interview them once they have a chance to recover from their whirlwind trip and we'll share their thoughts and observations in our September newsletter. For now, enjoy their photos!
