Abstract
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! Additionally, this month we join the National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities in recognizing Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month www.nacdd.org/ddam1. This campaign highlights opportunities for people with and without disabilities to come together to form strong, diverse communities. 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. Special highlights in this issue include: Artist Leonard Mariano, Make Art, Change Lives Emerging Leaders introductions, HI UCEDD COVID-19 vaccine activities, CDS Featured CDS projects and partners, #PacRim2022 International Forum highlights, #PacRim2022 Disability in Sub-Saharan Africa Special Issue, RDS Self-Advocacy trainee update, PBUCE Growth of Feeling Safe, Being Safe, DD Council Introduction NSF Includes Spring 2022 eNewsletter, Project Hōkūlani
