NCIL 2020 Policy Briefing - Shared screen with speaker view
Done, let me know how it looks!
It looks great and the side by side view is working perfectly.
Yay! Thank you so much!!! :)
Our CART writer has lost his connection. We will resume as soon as he is back on.
Our apologies for the delay!
If I'd known there'd be a delay, I would've run and brewed more coffee.
Finally get the interpreter videos right and the captioner loses internet! 30+ webinars a year and this is the first this has ever happened!
Captions are on now and looking good.
Thank Kelly Buckland for getting those CARES Act funds!

What is the "clear overreach" that NCIL refers to below?:June 24, 2019 By theadvocacymonitor Leave a CommentAs many of you have seen by now, ACL has released a document entitled FAQ: Allowable Advocacy Activities (Word). The document is intended to describe how CILs can meet federal requirements under the Rehabilitation Act to conduct advocacy without violating federal laws against lobbying with federal funds. We are currently in the process of reviewing this document, but we have major concerns.Systems advocacy is a core service of Centers for Independent Living, which means CILs are federally mandated to conduct advocacy activities. While understanding what types of advocacy are allowable with federal funds is important, this document demonstrates a clear overreach on the part of ACL. That said, we will not be intimidated, and we will strongly defend the right – and responsibility – of CILs to advocate.We are currently reviewing this document and considering our response, and we will send out additio
The NCIL attorney clearly outlines what the law says as opposed to what the ACL FAQ says - it involves more than I can share here - but watch for the NCIL FAQ which will clarify the over reach.

Hi Arielle, If they want a list of topics, yes, you can send them a list of all the topics that are listed on the slide. But you can usually also let them know that you want to talk about several topics related to disability rights, and they will generally connect you with the staffer(s) who works on disability issues.
Thanks to the interpreters!
