Join us to:

· Learn more about efforts occurring in APRIL and NCIL regarding ending violence and abuse of people with disabilities.

· Hear about the history of the Violence Against Women Movement and its similarities to the Disability Rights Movement

· Ask questions about the CILs’ role in the disability rights/antiviolence movement.

· Discuss how we can build CIL’s involvement in ending violence against people with disabilities.

· Share ideas and experiences from a CIL perspective and discuss resources for future training.

Call in from a quiet location and join the discussion or feel free to just listen in.

IL Conversations is a CIL-Net presentation hosted by APRIL in cooperation with ILRU and NCIL, and provides IL practitioners with an opportunity to talk with colleagues about the nuts and bolts of running a center for independent living and providing core and other services, as well as to address broader state and national issues impacting CILs, SILCs, and people with disabilities. Watch for our next IL Conversation Announcement! Different facilitators who are currently working in the field will join us to lead the discussion, answer questions and refer participants to additional resources.

Again, to join your colleagues in discussing this IMPORTANT Independent Living issue, call the APRIL Bridgeline,
