Recognizing lifelong achievements of peers who have made a positive impact on people with disabilities

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 up to 5 peers who have made achievements in the area(s) of improving public policy and programs/services, advancing new knowledge and/or concepts, eliminating barriers, and promoting a positive image for people with disabilities.  In October, look for details about the inductee nomination process.

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!

Proceeds from the event will help to sustain the awards ceremony and dinner in the future, and will also support both the Pat Figueroa Jr. Young Adult Scholarships and the Leadership Development and Civic Engagement Program (LDCEP).

Details about the Disability Rights Hall of Fame and how to buy tickets will be available soon on the NYSILC website.
