Organizers Forum: Advocating for the Disability Integration Act

  • Call-in: 1-515-739-1285

  • RSVP online

The Disability Integration Act (S.2427/HR.5689) is bi-partisan civil rights legislation which ensures that people who need Long Term Services and Supports are not forced into institutions and denied their most basic civil and Constitutional rights. With just a couple weeks of session left in this Congress, we need to act quickly to get as many cosponsors on the legislation as possible in order to propel us forward into the next Congress. Join us to learn about the bill, arguments to make with members of Congress and the intersectional implications of this critically-important disability rights issue.

Speakers:

  • Anita Cameron, ADAPT Activist and Blogger
  • Bruce Darling, ADAPT Organizer/Activist and CEO of Center for Disability Rights
  • Dominick Evans, Film director, writer and activist/CDR Media & Entertainment Advocate
  • Adam Prizio, Manager of Government Relations, Center for Disability Rights

Please note new number. This forum will be conducted through freeconferencecall.com and will allow people who don’t have long distance to join through their computers.
