Discover California Independent Living Programs at the April SILC Meeting in Long Beach
April 9, 2018 - April 10, 2018
The California State Independent Living Council (SILC) encourages public comments during the in-person council meeting in Long Beach. At this meeting, we provide an opportunity for the public to provide insights and share concerns to 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:
- Public Forum on the California I.L. Network Funding Formula;
- Strategic discussion about the future of Independent Living services;
- Success Stories and Youth Program report from Disabled Resources Center – local community resources agency;
- And More!
Monday, April 9 from 9:00AM to 5:00PM
Tuesday, April 10 from 9:30M to 3:00PM
