We are watching closely the ongoing pandemic and its effect on travel and in-person events. Should we need to make alterations to the in-person nature of our conference, we will announce such changes to our registrants and also here on this webpage. As of September, 2022, it is our intention to conduct an in-person event. We will announce conference safety measures as we approach the event, and they’ll be commensurate with federal, state, and municipal guidelines to reduce transmission of Covid-19.
The Disrupting Poverty Conference will be made fully accessible to its attendees. The venues at UMASS Boston meet all ADA compliance measures and accommodations will be made for any registrants requiring visual aid or hearing aid at the programming. Should you require ASL or other accommodations, we'll be happy to make them. Please contact Caroline Strouss at firstname.lastname@example.org.
