NCIL 2018 Annual Conference on Independent Living

July 23-26, 2018   |   Organized by: National Council on Independent Living (NCIL)


NCIL’s 2018 Annual Conference theme is Mobilize: Resistance through Action. For over a year now, members of Congress and aggressive ideologues have tried their hardest to strip people with disabilities of their health and liberty. We have met these challenges head-on and will continue to do so.

Some battles have been won, others lost. We are powerful, and 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.

In 2018, NCIL will focus heavily on mobilization and advocacy. This has always been the core of our work, but we must challenge ourselves to stay focused, strategic, and proactive. We cannot make progress without you. We need you to join us in Washington to show our power, take to the streets, and share our message of independence and empowerment.

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.
