Los Angeles Abilities Expo this weekend (March 4-6) at the Los Angeles Convention Center. March 1, 2022


Dear ECA SoCal members,

You are invited to join other ECA members, American Red Cross Volunteers, and Los Angeles Fire Department CERT members at the Los Angeles Abilities Expo this weekend (March 4-6) at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

This is a major event with special demonstrations (adaptive sports, inclusive dance performances, and more), a variety of informative workshops each day, and more than 100 exhibitors/vendors providing information, promoting services, and showcasing an amazing array of adaptive equipment, healthcare resources, and many other items. Like other events now resuming, the Expo will follow several safety measures

As we have in past years, Earthquake Country Alliance will be sharing a large booth area with key partners to provide earthquake preparedness and mitigation information, especially of course our resources for people with disabilities and new materials in many languages. This is a fantastic opportunity to meet and share safety information with participants, but also to learn from them about how we can improve our messaging and approach.  You are welcome to bring your organization’s preparedness materials to distribute too!

You are welcome to join us any day or multiple days of the Expo.  The Expo hours are Friday and Saturday from 11am – 5pm, and on Sunday from 11am – 4pm. To help us reach more people, please consider coming on Saturday or Sunday. By having a large team, we all will be able to visit the other booths, attend workshops, and see the demonstrations!

If you would like to join us, please email me at sandow@usc.edu for further instructions. We hope to see you there!
