FYI from the Institute on Community Integration: January 2019


FYI Monthly is a monthly e-communication from the Institute on Community Integration. The January 2019 edition includes three feature stories, a leading ICI Facebook post from the past month, a new publication, coming events, and several staff updates.

The first two feature stories are about ICI training people who assist individuals with disabilities in very different places: Liberia and Minnesota. The last feature story is about three Russians who visited Minnesota in January on an ICI project, observed Minnesota inclusion practices, and shared inclusion experiences from their home country.
