The public is invited to join the California State Independent Living Council (SILC) to make change happen for Californians with disabilities during the public hearing sessions at the quarterly meeting in Concord, California. Share your insights and concerns and help shape future independent living programs in California.
Public input is critical to the success of SILC and the state’s 28 Independent Living Centers. The SILC is particularly interested in the perspectives of persons living with a disability, chronic condition or health issue, family members of people with disabilities and advocates and community stakeholders concerned with disability rights.
In addition to updates by SILC committee members and staff, state partners and other attendees, the meeting will feature several informative discussions and presentations about:
the 2017-2019 SPIL Operations Plan,
more about the new ABLE accounts,
Independent Living programs offered in Santa Barbara,
Thursday, July 21 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and
Friday, July 22 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
