NCIL Releases Disability Pride Toolkit

NCIL is pleased to announce the release of our Disability Pride Toolkit, which was developed by outgoing Youth Transitions Fellow Kings Floyd in collaboration with NCIL’s Youth Caucus.

NCIL logo - National Council on Independent LivingThis toolkit is designed to help Youth Transitions Coordinators and Centers for Independent Living get started talking about disability pride within their local communities. While it is specifically targeted toward youth, the toolkit will be useful to advocates of any age.

The goal of the toolkit is to facilitate conversation about what it means to be proud of a disability identity as well as other intersectional identities. We encourage Centers for Independent Living and Statewide Independent Living Councils to start talking with youth in their communities about these topics, so that disability pride will be reflected in every aspect of the important work we accomplish together.

Please email, current Youth Transitions Fellow, with any questions.

    2015 I suffered a severe traumatic brain injury. I am unable to work, but I do volunteer at my church. Each city needs an advocacy group. The closest to me is Orlando and that’s too far to travel.
