MassFamilies was honored to be part of the 2023 Paul W. Spooner Generational Leadership Summit. The Summit was hosted by the Massachusetts Developmental Disabilities Council (MDDC), Disability Policy Consortium (DPC), and Boston Center for Independent Living (BCIL) on September 29-30, 2023 in Marlborough, MA.
The Summit included the new generation of disability advocacy leaders, and emerging leaders in advocacy in social justice for services, programs, and the human and civil rights of people with disabilities in Massachusetts. Approximately 20 new and emerging leaders were brought together with existing leaders to discuss where disability advocacy needs to go in the coming decade and what we can learn from the past that got us to where we are today.
MassFamilies Co-Chair, Rania Kelly, attended and led one of the workshops at the Summit. The workshop was centered around identifying common goals, shared values, and universal principles within the emerging disability leaders participating in the summit.
