Convention Sponsors

Southeastern Ohio Center for Independent Living, Jordy D. Stringer, Executive Director
Serving Fairfield and Hocking Counties, founded in 2002, SOCIL is managed by a Board of Directors and staff comprised mostly of persons with various disabilities. The foundation of CIL services is the peer relationship–people with disabilities assisting other people with disabilities as role models and mentors. Each center is unique.

Disability Rights Ohio, Kerstin Sjoberg, Executive Director
Disability Rights Ohio is a non-profit corporation with a mission to advocate for the human, civil and legal rights of people with disabilities in Ohio. We envision a society in which people with disabilities are full and equal members, enjoy the rights and opportunities of all people, are self-directed, make decisions about where, how and with whom they will live, learn, work and play, have access to needed services and supports, and are free from abuse, neglect, exploitation and discrimination
