INDEPENDENT LIVING DAY 2019

On January 30, 2019, ECI staff and participants joined other people with disabilities from across the state to promote the importance of Independent Living Services in our community. It was a chance for the Independent Living community to come together and speak with their legislators about how certain proposed laws could create a more integrated community or add barriers to access. It was a day where people with disabilities not only advocated for changes that could eliminate barriers in their individual communities, but also speak about how beneficial an integrated community could be. It was a wonderful day. On the bus ride back to ECI everyone was tired, but there was a sentiment that change was possible
