Strategies to Promote Inclusion in Faith Communities

The Second Annual Disabilities and Congregation Inclusion Conference will present a variety of strategies that are being used by communities across the country, including community conversations, audits and awareness campaigns, disability ministries, and more.

Religious leaders and educators, individuals with disabilities and their families, and disability service providers are invited to participate.
