On July 20, 2012, Get Safe and Area Board 11 hosted the 2012 Self-Advocacy Conference for persons with developmental disabilities in Orange County. This event was similar to the conference at IRC in June, but we also had a community fair beforehand where attendees had the opportunity to mingle with Anaheim PD, OC Sheriff’s Dept., and several local community organizations.
Theme of the Day? “Summer of Self-Advocacy.”
Throughout the day the participants showed a great interest and enthusiasm in becoming self-advocates, being strong leaders in their community, and creating the OC Self-Advocacy Group!
