Click here for the New York Association on Independent Living 2017 Priority Agenda
Equal opportunity and independence for people with disabilities isn't just a matter of individual skills or determination. It's also about having sound practices, policies, and laws throughout society ... from schools and local businesses, to employers large and small, to local, state, and national government. While NCCI helps individuals resolve their own advocacy issues, we also pursue broader activism goals that can make life better for all people with disabilities. We look to improve physical accessibility, full community integration, and equal opportunity in:
- Health Care and Long Term Care
- Business and Commerce
- Voting and Citizenship
For day-to-day developments in local, state, and national disability issues, follow NCCI’s blog and social media sites:
