    • Learn how to identify opportunities to work together for the mutual benefit of all partners, i.e., emergency preparedness education and training, including how to foster participation of people with disabilities in drills and exercises, and training for emergency management on disability culture, the IL movement, and developing disability competency within their profession.
    • Understand the importance of encouraging people with disabilities to volunteer, particularly with Red Cross. In addition, how to help volunteer agencies create an environment which welcomes us, and recognizes our value as subject matter experts.
