2019 Annual Conference on Independent Living

July 22-25, 2019   |   Organized by: National Council on Independent Living (NCIL)


A Message from the Executive Director

Dear Advocates and Friends,

NCIL’s 2019 Annual Conference theme is IGNITE.

The Independent Living Movement ignites action and empowerment. When there is work to be done, we do it. When bad policy threatens our independence and rights, we fight back. When we know we have a better way, we take action to influence policy and pass laws. We are organized, we are powerful, and we know what we want.

We must share resources, strategize, and train new advocates if we want to succeed in our efforts to protect our programs and secure the independence of people with disabilities.

NCIL’s Annual Conference is the largest Independent Living event of the year. NCIL regularly hosts over 1,000 people, including grassroots advocates, CIL and SILC leadership, members of Congress, government officials, and representatives from other major organizations that work for justice and equity for people with disabilities.

Please join us in Washington this July to show our power, take to the streets, and share our message. Together, our individual sparks will ignite a flame that cannot be ignored.

Your Partner in Disability Rights,

Kelly Buckland
