The Arc Moving Forward & Self-Advocacy Annual Conference

June 16, 2023 @ 8:00 am June 17, 2023 @ 1:30 pm

In collaboration with the Developmental Disabilities Council, The Arc of New Mexico is delighted to announce The Arc Moving Forward & Self-Advocacy Annual Conference 2023!
Our Theme for this year’s conference is “Resilience in Motion“.
After the last few years, how we live our everyday lives has changed dramatically. The impact of a pandemic on our work, our shopping habits, our recreation, and entertainment, and how we simply interact with each other is different. Our world has changed. People with disabilities, their families, disability support providers, and practitioners had to adjust to this environment. We have overcome these barriers and continue to focus on advocacy while rising above with resilience! We move forward with confidence!
