This year, FRIDCon will focus on power, privilege and oppression. We will have several workshops delving into these topics, a panel discussion, and three FRIDTalks by presenters who will share their own views, insights and experiences with power, privilege and oppression. The night will close with FRID's annual event, a FRIDtastic Evening, where awards will be given and there will be performances by Joel Ortiz, a deaf performance artist. It will be an action packed weekend that you won't want to miss!

An "All Access" registration for FRIDCon gets you into all of the following events:
