Thank you for joining us at The Arc’s 2019 National Convention. We hope you enjoyed learning and connecting with us! From opening employment opportunities with Vincenzo Piscopo to equal representation in the media with Sesame Street, and dozens of sessions in between, we heard from leaders and changemakers in the disability community. We loved seeing you laugh along to the comedy of Maysoon Zayid and show off your moves on the dance floor with The DC National’s very own racing presidents to the tunes of DJ Beauty and the Beatz. We’re sad it’s over, but excited to announce next year’s Convention in New Orleans from October 25 – 28! We hope to see you then!
