Last weekend, Lucy, Kevin B and Nancy attended the MASS Self Advocacy Conference along with Holly Doman. Lucy represents WCI Standing Strong at the MASS Metro regional meetings every month.
From Lucy, “We went to the Mass Advocacy Conference. First we had breakfast then we went to a meeting and heard another individual talk about her own business and she would like to hire people with disabilities for her company. We also went to our regional meeting which is called Metro. We met Caroline after that we had lunch then we looked around at the displays and then went to a workshop called Standing Up for Inclusion. They told us how to stand up for ourselves to be included in things that we are interested in. The last workshop was karaoke and dancing. I sang Stand By Your Man! I had a really good time and I would like to go next year!”
