Grant of up to $30,000 to a Missouri organization to plan a conference in support of people with disabilities. Funding is intended for a project to develop an event in which diverse organizations will meet and collaborate on efforts to create systemic change for individuals with developmental disabilities.
The overall goal is to create a one day, statewide, Community Alliance Summit that would engage new diverse potential allies, stimulate learning from one another, scrutinize the intersectionality of disability and other diverse cultures, and explore opportunities for partnerships and collaboration in advocacy. The development of the Summit would be foundational work in building culturally and linguistically diverse allies to collaborate on systems change advocacy efforts and to inform the future work of MODDC.
Through this project, MODDC desires to replicate the Pennsylvania Community Alliance Summit (PA CAS), which is funded by the Pennsylvania Developmental Disabilities Council (PADDC). While Pennsylvania’s event was held virtually due to COVID-19, it is recommended to hold future Summits in person or consider offering a hybrid model.
It is assumed the first year of the project would be a planning phase consisting of not only planning the event, but working in collaboration with MODDC to complete the networking and cultural engagement necessary to bring people together for the CAS. The second year of the project would be dedicated to holding the event; with the third year focusing on end of project evaluation and developing recommendations for future work.
For a list of working premises and scope of work for the CAS, see:
