The 65th Annual DPI/NGO Conference Declaration was adopted by the conference on August 29, 2014. The TOU’s Grove Harris participated on the drafting team that worked to incorporate contributions to the document over the days of the conference and create a statement that can be used to move the work towards a transformative agenda forward.
