International Disability Rights Affirmation Conference for the Dec 1st Nonprofit Commons Meeting

Joyce Bettencourt-2

Join us Friday, December 1st for the NonProfit Commons in Second Life meeting features a field trip to Virtual Ability, Inc. and the International Disability Rights Affirmation Conference (IDRAC). The conference will take place December 1st and 2nd virtually in Second Life® at The Sojourner Auditorium on Virtual Ability. 

This year’s theme is “Who Is Responsible?” This theme is broad and open to interpretation by the presenters we invited to this year’s event. If past conferences are any indication, we look forward to lively discussions and information sharing among presenters and the very interested and interactive audience.
