DAC reaches out at NATTA event

One of Disability Action Center’s goals is to improve outreach efforts to the Native American community in its service areas.

DAC staff and management attended the Native American Training and Technical Assistance conference for families, people and tribal members with disabilities May 8 at Win-River Casino in Redding.

“It is vital that we become more diverse and expand our outreach to the Native American community,” said Carolyn Nava, who answered questions and provided information to the public at DAC’s table during the daylong event.

Substantive presentations by regional centers like Far Northern, In Home Support Services (IHSS), labor unions like SEIU, and disability rights advocates focusing on autism and other developmental disabilities highlighted the event.
