Illinois Disability Rights Consortium meeting Jan 28th; webcast live

The next meeting of the Disability Rights Consortium will take place on Wednesday January 28th  from 9:30-11:00  CT at Equip for Equality.  

The focus of the meeting will be on Employment.  Specifically, we'll be focusing on the implementation of Employment First in Illinois, which means that competitive integrated employment should be the first option for people with disabilities.  As some of you know, Equip for Equality produced a report called the Blueprint for Employment First.  

At our meeting, Equip for Equality’s Cheryl Jansen, Melissa Picciola and Barry Taylor will review the Blueprint and answer questions.  Please forward this meeting announcement to others who may be interested in this issue.

 The meeting will be Webcast on www.illinoislegaladvocate.org  Just click on “Calendar” and then click on the link for the Consortium meeting to access the meeting remotely.
