2022 IDELIO AWARD

About the Idelio Award

Idelio Valdes was a self-advocate who had a tremendous impact on the people around him and the community in which he lived and worked. His life’s journey included many ups and downs but he always stayed the course to self-realization, commitment to service and a belief that he and others with intellectual and developmental disabilities can be included in the community. His demonstrated advocacy activities, his belief in building partnerships, his initiative in challenging the status quo and his enthusiasm for life and its possibilities endeared him to all who were fortunate enough to know him. This award is dedicated to his memory.
