You’re Invited: 2018 NCIL Congressional Briefing & Reception on Capitol Hill

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The National Council on Independent Living (NCIL) hopes that you will join us at our annual Congressional Briefing & Reception on the State of Disability in America. The briefing will take place on Wednesday, February 28, 2018 from 5:00-7:00 in the Russell Senate Office Building 385.

Last year’s NCIL Briefing was extremely successful, and was well attended by leaders in the disability community, representatives from the Administration, and both parties in Congress. NCIL was proud to host an engaging event on the Hill in 2017, and with so much at stake in 2018, we want to ensure that our elected officials understand the issues that are most important to our community. We invite you to start off 2018 with us in the spirit of collaboration and progress.

The reception will include a short presentation on the state of the Independent Living Program in America, and brief remarks by members of the NCIL Board of Directors. Members of the House and Senate, as well as members of the Administration, have also been invited to provide brief remarks. Each year, the NCIL Congressional Briefing has an incredible lineup of speakers, and we are looking forward to an equally exciting event this year.

We would like to thank Anthem, Inc. for their continued support, and thank you to Senator Casey for sponsoring the room for this event. If you plan to attend, please RSVP at the link below or to NCIL’s Policy Analyst, Lindsay Baran, at lindsay@ncil.org by Thursday, February 22, 2018.
