The Austin crew attended the Minnesota Self-Advocacy Conference in Bloomington on May 12th and 13th. We attended a yoga class, self defense, self advocacy bingo, and living your dream sessions. We learned that differing abilities should never hold them back from trying to achieve their dream and that we need to speak up for ourselves and what is important to us. During class we learned that advocacy has come a long way and there are many who have worked hard to get us where we are today. We also had fun, which is a Cardinal Core Value. We made new friends, some won at bingo, we relaxed in the hot tub, ate good food, and danced the night away. We recommend to other self advocates to attend the Minnesota Self Advocacy Conference in 2019.
