Call to Action Seminar

On September 18th, 2010, we held our highly successful Call to Action Seminar in Riverside, CA. In the Morning Session we were given important information about the department of rehabilitation, and campus resources at the community college and university. In the Afternoon session we discussed a wide variety of topics, from the latest in technology to self-advocacy. The session ended with a rousing speech by Ever Lee Hairston about Youth Slam. In the very near future, we will dedicate an entire page to the seminar recordings, offering you the opportunity to listen to each speech indevidually, or hear the entire sessions.

Stay tuned, as we are continuing to add to this page.
