Hope for Disabilities

Fulfilling unmet needs in the disability community

32nd Annual Pacific Rim International Conference on Disability & Diversity

From the Margins to the Center

April 25 & 26, 2016

Location: Honolulu, Hawai'i at the Hawai'i Convention Center

The Pacific Rim International Conference on Disabilities has been widely recognized over the past 25 years as one of the most diverse gatherings in the world. The event encourages and respects voices from diverse perspective across numerous areas, including: voices from persons representing all disability areas; experiences of family members and supporters across all disability areas; responsiveness to diverse cultural and language differences; evidence of researchers and academics studying disability; stories of persons providing powerful lessons; examples of program providers, natural supports and allies of persons with disabilities and; action plans to meet human and social needs in a globalized world.

Each year the conference hews to its traditional areas which have bred much of the interdisciplinary research and educational advances of the last three decades. But each year new topics are introduced to foment discussion and change. The intent is to harness the tremendous synergy as generated by the intermingling of these diverse perspectives, thus, creating a powerful program which impacts each individual participant in his or her own unique way.
