Webinar May 23rd: The Disability Integration Act & Why it Matters to You

United Spinal Association is offering a webinar on May 23, 2017. This webinar will provide details about the Disability Integration Act, a bill that, if passed, would create an absolute right for all people with disabilities to live in the community instead of being forced into institutional settings, such as nursing homes. Participants will learn the specifics of the bill, and how this law would benefit people with spinal cord disabilities by ensuring services and supports needed are provided in a person's home.

Presenter: Stephanie Woodward, director of Advocacy at the Center for Disability Rights in Rochester, NY.

Audience: People with disabilities, self-advocates, and caregivers.

WHEN: Tuesday, May 23, 2017 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT
