Let’s Commemorate the Rehabilitation Act of 1973: The Power of Independent Living & Employment

September 19, 2023; 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time

The month of September marks the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Rehab Act).

The National Council on Independent Living (NCIL) and the RAMP Center for Independent Living will jointly reflect on successful strategies they adopted over the years to move people with disabilities out of institutions and to help them obtain and retain competitive, integrated employment.
