MASILC annually sponsors Independent Living Education Day at the State House. Independent Living staff and disability activists get together and educate legislators on independent living priorities. Legislators also educate IL staff and activists on their disability successes and priorities. After presentations, attendees usually meet with their own legislators.
The State House closed for Covid-19 right before IL Education day in 2020. Zoom had not yet become a “thing”, and we were forced to cancel the event.
