ADVOCACY

CIL was founded on collective action and activism. We aim to carry on this foundational spirit by continuing to fight for disability justice and pursue equitable accessibility in all facets of our community by breaking stigma and raising expectations. 

Some local and statewide issues our advocacy team is currently focusing on include:

  • Affordable and accessible housing and transportation

  • Emergency and disaster preparedness

  • Long-term/In-home support and services

  • Intersections of environmental, social and disability justice

What are issues you are worried about or care about?
