National Council on Independent Living Annual Conference
From NCIL: "NCIL’s 2013 Annual Conference on Independent Living is an opportunity for new leadership, new ideas, and growth! The theme of the entire event will be regeneration, from the perspectives of all of the generations, communities, populations, and people that make the Independent Living Movement vibrant and powerful! One of the hallmarks of our Movement and organizations is peer support. We must share and learn from each other if we are to continue to organize and succeed.
Let us come together next July to gain new perspective from young advocates, learn from the success of veteran leaders, and ensure we are representing everyone in our communities back home. We will take time to learn about the issues affecting young people with disabilities, communicate strategies for making our Movement truly representative of all people with disabilities, share effective ways to include and empower new advocates, and provide a forum to develop proactive systems advocacy action and solutions to barriers new and old!
We will come together to share our strengths, embrace new leadership, and ensure our freedom and independence as individuals and a Movement of people with disabilities!"
