Keynote Address Highlights Social Capital

December 16, 2015

In October, Center for Independent Futures hosted a day-long conference focused on building capacity through strengthening communities. The keynote address, captured by Guy Bauer Productions, was delivered by Al Condeluci, a nationally known leader and consultant on human services and community issues.

Al’s keynote address shared his expertise on social capital, or the importance of relationships, and how strong communities can create new opportunities for individuals with disabilities. Watch the full keynote in the video above. Footage of the day’s panel discussion, featuring family members and individuals working toward alternative housing solutions in their communities, will be released soon. Thank you to Guy Bauer Productions for their incredible work recording the day!

Center for Independent Futures is grateful to Al for sharing his insights with us, to The Asset-Based Community Development Institute at Northwestern University for co-sponsoring the event, and for the support of the Coleman Foundation for making the day possible.
