According to the event’s Engage page, the conference will explore, “self-advocacy, individual advocacy, and systems advocacy, while discovering how we can impact public and political policy, digital, cultural and societal norms, and individual and family well-being.”
The conference will begin at 10 a.m. with keynote speaker Kat Blaque. Blaque is a Youtuber, illustrator, and writer who focuses on intersectionality in various identities and experiences. Her keynote will discuss the power of one’s voice and active allyship in today’s culture.
