On April 13, 2016 The Arc of Virginia is kicking off it's W(h)ining Wednesdays for Sibs Happy Hour
Every second Wednesday of the month from 6-8pm we will meet at a local bar/restaurant in the Merrifield Mosaic District to network with fellow siblings. Only three days after the unofficial National Siblings Day, we thought it timely to offer a comfortable setting where sibs 21 and older could meet to network, relate, share, and have a good time together. We'll be at Black Finn in Falls Church at 6pm on Wednesday, April 13. It's close to the Metro and bus stop for any sibling 21+ who wishes to join the Trust Team from The Arc of Northern Virginia. Regards,Tia Marsili.
By uniting, we can support each other and be stronger together.
The self-advocacy movement serves as a model for us to learn how we can get involved in advocacy with our brothers and sisters.
Connections through VA SIBS can provide a unique perspective for families on how to support and involve all of their children/family members.
Many professionals provide important support to siblings and partner with them throughout their lives.
Anyone who is a friend or colleague to siblings and their families is welcome.
Siblings have the longest bond and a unique perspective.
We are the Virginia Chapter of the National Sibling Leadership Network (NSLN). By joining you become connected to siblings and sibling supporters statewide, and will receive updates from the NSLN. The more members we have, the greater impact we will have.
All members receive information and updates about our activities as well as initiatives, policy decisions and sibling related events that are important to brothers and sisters. Keep up to date on conferences and events, initiatives, policy decisions, and much more.
