About The Event
Each year, the New Jersey Self-Advocacy Project (NJSAP) and the New Jersey Statewide Self-Advocacy Network (NJSSAN) work together to host the annual Fall Conference. The event is an opportunity for Disability Advocates to network, learn about current advocacy issues, and attend professional development workshops.
The theme of our 2022 conference is “Sharing Our Skills''. The NJSSAN wants to take this opportunity to highlight the skills and experience of its current members. For the first time, NJSSAN Board members will serve as the event’s Keynote Speakers. Advocates will discuss the current priorities impacting the Network and also how topics like supported decision making, mental healthcare access, and staffing issues impact the daily lives of people with IDD statewide.
Please see the side bar for the full schedule.
The event is FREE, but donations are appreciated.
