Black History Month
Join Las Trampas as we celebrate Black History Month and the incredible contributions of Black individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and their families to our nation’s history, culture, and progress. They face unique challenges due to intersecting systems of oppression, but their strength, resilience, and achievements inspire us all.
