Letter from the Director Ask Emerson Best Buddies Spotlight e-Buddy of the Month Tech Corner e-Buddies in Action!

Dear Friend,

My July will start with a bang with fireworks on July 4th, and finish with a flourish at the Annual Best Buddies Leadership Conference. Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays, celebrating as it does the founding of our nation and the ideals upon which it is built life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

I find it fitting that we hold our Leadership Conference the same month we celebrate our freedom. It is at the Leadership Conference that we train 1,400 student leaders from around the world in how to effectively run their Best Buddies chapter. It is thrilling to attend, knowing that they will return to their schools spreading the mission of friendship and inclusion to literally tens of thousands of people over the coming school year.

When I light my sparklers this July 4th, I will be thinking of Best Buddies and the promise of freedom from loneliness we offer to people with intellectual disabilities. Thank you for being part of our work.

All the best,
Lisa Derx
Vice President
