Join fellow advocates and professionals at the Indiana Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities 22nd annual conference on December 5-6, 2016! This year’s conference, themed “Creating a Culture of Change” will take place at the Westin Hotel in Downtown Indianapolis.
The disability rights movement continues to build momentum, and it’s creating a culture of change — change for the better. We’ve had victories small and large along the way. We’ve seen groundbreaking legislation from forward-thinking supporters.
Legal victories, such as the Olmstead and the Jenny Hatch cases, prove there are advocates willing to challenge the system. The passing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) was a huge leap forward. The recent passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and the ABLE Act, together with the Disability Integration Act on the horizon, demonstrates that the disability community has forced a change in the status quo and continues to make strides towards full inclusion.
Many barriers still exist that prevent people with disabilities from being full, active participants in their communities. We hope you’ll join us in embracing a culture of change — change that will ensure all people with disabilities receive the services and supports they deserve to live rewarding, meaningful, community-integrated lives
