IDNO, the Interfaith Disabilities Network of Oregon, is delighted to have hosted the dynamic conference, Beyond the Ramp 2014: Treat Me as a Member, Not a Mission.
With keynote speaker Bill Gaventa leading the way, it was a day of inquiry, understanding, appreciation, and learning. Our guests panelists were dynamic and clearly a hit with all who attended, and we all benefited from hearing their personal perspectives on living with a disability. Each workshop was conducted by talented individuals with grace and expertise that all those in attendance appreciated.
We are grateful to Concordia University for their help in presenting the conference, and for the use of their wonderful facility where everyone had easy access to each room and building. The vendors, who were so gracious of their time and energy, provided great information and support to the guests, for which IDNO is most appreciative.
