Words Take Action stenciled onto a paved road

You can make a difference in the fight for disability rights! 

RCIL makes it easy to learn about key legislation and important issues that impact disability rights.

Central to RCIL’s mission is fostering initiatives and legislation that promote fully integrated lives and total accessibility for persons with disabilities. The time for placing persons in segregated institutional settings, or sheltered workshops being paid piece rate, or fifty cents an hour, has surely passed.

RCIL weaves advocacy into every service it provides, and has several programs focused specifically on making change happen.
