The New York State Independent Living Council, Inc. (NYSILC) is proud to announce the creation of the NYS Disability Rights Hall of Fame. NYSILC will induct 8 peers who have made life-long achievements which positively impact people with disabilities in society. Areas of achievement include: improving public policy and programs/services, advancing new knowledge and/or concepts, eliminating barriers, and promoting a positive image for people with disabilities.

Join us for the 1st Annual NYS Disability Rights Hall of Fame Awards Ceremony and Dinner on April 26, 2018 from 5:30-8:30pm at the Hilton Garden Inn in Troy, NY. Enjoy delicious fare and the company of friends while you celebrate the accomplishments of the very first inductees!
