News from DAC NW

Getting ready to G.O.!

Staff at DAC NW, LINC, Life Inc,  and from the Nez Perce Tribe have been busy putting together a great statewide (and Washington) Independent Living Conference for this month. After comments from the last one – more options, shorter classes and longer breaks, we have updated the schedule to accommodate that.

There is something for everyone! We cover topics like budgeting, cooking, employment, housing, mental health, advocacy, and have a focus on getting outdoors for accessible recreation.

Our keynote speaker on Wednesday is Todd J. Holcomb from Clearwater Trekkers. He will share information about how getting outdoors and into wild spaces can lead us to the center of ourselves and become a catalyst for personal transformation.

Our keynote speaker on Thursday is David Grassi, a parasport athlete who works at WSU in University Recreation. He will talk about how he competed in all kinds of adaptive sports like wheelchair basketball and track and field.

Our inspiration for the conference is the many advocacy projects across the state to make outdoor recreation accessible for all. Whether it is wheelchair or blind accessible trails and water sports, or community gardens where people of all abilities can grow their own food, getting outside is a proven boost to mental and physical health and people with disabilities need to get outside too!

Scholarships available for those who can’t afford the conference fee.
