Whoopi Goldberg inspired Lupita Nyong’o.

These are a few images from the 1st social work conference I attended this week as a macro social worker, & disability rights consultant & advocate. I conducted my 1st professional presentation, where I discussed the plight of people with disabilities, & how social workers can become visible & empowering advocates for PWDs. It was an incredible experience, & it validated the mission & vision I have in creating my unique place & space in the disability rights movement.
I plan to write about this experience in next week’s Ramp Your Voice! article. This opportunity was a great networking experience, & I thoroughly enjoyed being amongst my fellow social workers! ~ Vilissa
