Take the Advocacy Challenge! 

LICIL is committed to advancing public policy that preserves and promotes disability equality, but we can’t do it alone. We need you.  Legal, social, economic and civil rights are essential to personal liberty and to the freedom of our community as a whole; and our voices have definite impact, especially when we raise them together.  Add your voice to the call for legislation and policy decisions that recognize Disability rights as civil rights and empower us to live, learn, work, play and vote without limits. Are you in?

To learn more about how you can get involved with LICIL’s ongoing advocacy and public policy efforts, please contact Therése Brzezinski — ThereseA@licil.com; 516-796-0144 (v); 516-796-0135 (TTY)

Sign-On to Urge Biden Admin to Prioritize Home and Community Based Services (HCBS)

Our response urges the Administration to recommit to their promises to the Disability Community by investing in HCBS and in resources and supports that people with disabilities need to live in the community. The Administration’s commitment to equity can only be fulfilled when it includes unwavering enforcement of the civil rights of people with disabilities.
