Community Forum & Legislative Dinner

Time & Date: Friday – 5/31/2019 @ 6pm
Place: Adria Hotel, 221-17 Northern Blvd., Bayside, NY 11361
The year 2020 will be the 30th anniversary of the American Disability Act, the national law that
ensures equal rights and opportunities for people with disabilities. However, the existing gap
between inclusion policies and practices is still significant in New York State.
On May 31, Sibling Net of CIDA, in collaboration with the Self-Advocacy Association of New
York (SANYS), invites stakeholders to address seven key areas (see below) that are critical to
the inclusion of people with disabilities within the community. During the event, the gaps
between the policy, practice and legislative efforts in these key areas will be discussed by seven
different groups of stakeholders and representatives from the local legislators’ offices.
This is an invitation only event, and we are expecting 100 stakeholders who are families,
advocates, representatives, government agencies, service providers and educators. If you are
interested in joining the panel discussions on the above topics, please contact Dr. Young Seh
Bae at youngsehbae@cidainfo.com by May 14th .
