Disability Issues and Advocacy Conference 2014

We are pleased to announce the details of our second annual Disability Issues and Advocacy Conference on April 4-5, 2014!

The purpose of this conference is to bring together local and national disability theorists and policy-makers to discuss issues of respect, justice, equality, and policy for people with disabilities. Campus Disability Advocates seeks to bring these issues to the students and faculty at the University of Tennessee, to the citizens of the greater Knoxville area, and to the broader national community. We want the ideas fostered at this conference to have tangible effects in our city and across the nation.
