Approximately 250 attendees participated in plenary and break-out sessions over the course of the two-day conference.

The conference attendees joined the IAC staff in honoring Richard Bosch, IAC Assistant Executive Director, for his twenty-five years of exemplary service.



G.CanadaGeoffrey Canada of Harlem Children's Zone shared his personal story and then ended with a call to action and suggestions for how to achieve our advocacy goals.
