These are all words you hear a lot if you use social media sites like Facebook, Twitter or Google Plus.

Since we get asked about these social media sites a lot, we wanted to pass it along.

RHODE ISLAND’S 2015 STATEWIDE SELF-ADVOCACY CONFERENCE took place on Thursday, October 29th at the Crowne Plaza in Warwick.
Members from the VT State NEAT Team (Nicole LeBlanc, Karen Topper and Skye Peebles) headed down to Rhode Island for the conference!
Nicole LeBlanc was the keynote speaker for the conference and did a great job talking about dignity of risk and high expectations. The VT team also taught workshops about sexuality and dating.
Skye Peebles set up a display table about the NEAT project and connected with lots of Rhode Island folks about the project.
The theme of the conference was NOW MORE THAN EVER. Advocates in Action of Rhode Island wrote on their website that the conference “was a celebration of 20 years of Statewide Self-Advocacy Conferences here in our state and it was a BLAST! Thank you to this year’s conference volunteers, presenters, sponsors and the 400 plus attendees who made the 2015 event a huge success!”
