    Welcome to March’s Spring 2022 issue of the CDS eNewsletter. We were pleased to offer a successful 37th Annual Pacific Rim International Conference on Disability and Diversity. Over 500 participants from around the world were part of this year’s virtual event, which spanned two days of conference activities and events and a pre-conference day of Capacity Building Institutes. Mahalo to everyone who participated in helping make this annual tradition happen, whether as presenter, attendee or volunteer!

The campaign raises awareness about inclusion of people with developmental disabilities in all aspects of community life, as well the barriers many people with disabilities still face in connecting to the communities in which they live.
