The theme of NCIL’s 2021 Annual Conference is Liberty, Independence, Freedom, and Equity (LIFE).

Liberty, Independence, Freedom, and Equity represent the pillars of the work we must do. We will fight for the liberty of people with disabilities incarcerated in institutions, including nursing homes, psychiatric institutions, intermediate care facilities, jails and prisons, and other congregate settings. We will fight for the independence and freedom of people with disabilities to lead our own lives. We will fight for equity in all that we do to achieve a more just, anti-racist, and equitable society and Independent Living Movement. This is our agenda. Join Us!

Registration Policies

BIPOC Complimentary Registrations

NCIL is excited to offer complimentary registrations to all BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) who want to attend NCIL’s 2021 Virtual Conference on Independent Living. NCIL is offering these complimentary registrations to all BIPOC to offer reparations for past harm and exclusion, in commitment to our transition to becoming a truly equitable and just organization. BIPOC folks will receive a discount code in the registration form to waive their registration fee.

Beginning in 2022, NCIL will offer BIPOC conference grants that will be application-based. We will release more information on the grants, including how to donate or apply in early 2022.  

Youth Registration Rate

NCIL offers a reduced youth registration fee of $90 to all NCIL members that are 26 years old or younger. We hope this special rate will allow young people to afford the Conference and organizations to sponsor young people to attend.
