The NYS Disability Rights Hall of Fame was created to recognize the contributions of people with disabilities whose lifelong work has substantially taken place in New York State.  NYSILC will induct up to 5 peers who have made a positive impact on people with disabilities throughout the state, country, and/or internationally.
  
All contributions should support the concepts of consumer control, peer support, self-help, self-determination, equal access, and individual and systems advocacy to maximize the leadership, empowerment, independence, productivity, integration, and full inclusion of individuals with disabilities into the mainstream of American society.
 
Nominations fr the 2020 Hall of Fame are now closed.  Inductees will be selected and announced in February.
