Come meet like-minded individuals and exchange ideas on issues at the forefront of accessibility, culture, and social impact.

Our Presence is Our Power is a virtual leadership summit led by NAMD Advocates and made for disabled leaders of color and BIPOC allies who are committed to justice, inclusion, and transformative practices across the workplace. This year's summit will feature dynamic speakers and interactive sessions focusing on the past, present, and future of racial and disability justice. We will explore what it means to be sick in a Black body and share knowledge about economic momentum, prosperity, and the future of BIPOC innovation.

Leaders across the country will unite to share their knowledge and empower our community to thrive. This year's summit is a significant opportunity to celebrate solidarity and learn how we can work together to achieve justice for all. Attendees will leave the summit with a renewed sense of purpose and the tools they need to make lasting changes in their communities.
