The Riot Hosts Teleconference Series on Healthy Intimate Relationships

From The Riot!:

The Riot would like to invite you to join them for another teleconference series titled:  A National Conversation on Healthy Relationships!

There will be a total of three calls with real talk between self-advocates, family members and healthcare providers about intimate relationships, personal safety and advice from peers.  We’ll be tackling the tough questions that are on a lot of people’s minds but many are afraid to talk about.  Let’s break down those barriers and open the lines of communication!

At the end of each call, we will have a Question and Answer session from the audience.  The calls will last 90 minutes each.  This will be one teleconference series you won’t want to miss!

The registration fee will be $25 per teleconference for ONE phone line.  If you use a speaker phone you can gather people around and listen together!  Additional lines will be $25 each.

If you register for all three teleconferences, you will pay only $20 per teleconference or $60 total!  Additional lines will also be $20 each.  So, it pays to register for all three!
