In His Own Words: Nybil attends ADAPT Community Organizing Training

ACI's IL Specialist and Social Rec Coordinator, Nybil Ghanem, recently attended the ADAPT Community Organizer Training in Austin, Texas. Here's what he had to say about his visit...

"I learned a lot through the ADAPT training of Texas this past August, as about 25 others from all across the country, joined us for a weekend of non-stop training on how to advocate as an activist with a disability. Topics discussed were: Negotiation Tactics, Protests, Issues VS. Concerns, Organizer Thinking & People Power. The climax was when we completely shutdown a taco store in protest for not being accessible for people with disabilities as part of our training. What a wonderful training on community organizing."
