ITACC Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Learning Opportunity - June 14, 2022

Please join us for an important conversation about how Councils are using demographic data to inform their work, both at the project/activity level and at the Council program level.

This knowledge sharing opportunity is a follow-up to our March 2022 webinar on Sensitive Practices when Collecting Demographic Data.  During that webinar we asked participants if they used demographic data to inform state plan work, we learned that 32% of people responding said yes! and 39% of people responding said sometimes. This provides an opportunity for you to share your practices and knowledge with peers from other DD Councils in the states and territories.  Please join us!

June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month

The purpose of this commemorative month is to recognize the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally.   The Stonewall riots in June of 1969 serves as the catalyst for this movement in the United States and around the world.  

You can find President Bidents Proclamation on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Pride Month, 2021 by clicking here and find out more of the history of Stonewall and the pride movement in America by visiting this link Pride - HISTORY or We are looking for Council Success Stories focused on the LGBTQ+ Community.   

To further recognize the impact of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the LGBTQ+ community, share your Council Success Stories!
