I have just returned from a very remarkable and inspiring conference, the EPIC Western State DD Network Partner Summit. EPIC, which stands for Equal Partners Interstate Congress (EPIC), represents the collaboration of disability civil rights organizations in Idaho, Alaska, Wyoming and Nevada to strengthen self advocacy/civil rights in our states. 11 states were invited to participate in the conference, building on the success of the EPIC grant. Ten states participated, including folks from our state.
