The Champaign Board of Developmental Disabilities will host a virtual conference on Sept. 25 from 10 a.m. to noon via Zoom.

“My Story, a Journey into Self-Advocacy” is the theme of the conference, which is designed to encourage people with developmental disabilities and increase their knowledge of ways to advocate for themselves. Guests at the event will hear about accomplishments of self-advocates and discover ways to strive for their own goals and make their communities a better place to live, work and play – together.
