For over 20 years, Hoosiers with disabilities have gathered at the Council’s annual conference to collectively strengthen the advocacy base, refine personal skills and increase knowledge of disability issues. As the disability rights movement forged partnerships outside of the disability community to expand its base, so has the Council in providing conference themes with a wider appeal. Themes have included “Celebrating Community,” “Community Connections: Making Indiana a Livable Community,” and “Dream to Dare: Game - Changing Communities.” The conference has gained support from the Association of Cities and Towns and has attracted mayors, city planners, health professionals, the aging community, and ignited a conversation about the value of livability for all.
This year's Conference on Disability will be held December 5th and 6th at the Westin Downtown Indianapolis.
