Advocacy Day for Access & Independence

April 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

#BarrierFreeSC. Help us remove the barriers to Public Access, Transportation, Employment, and Housing for people with disabilities! Save the date for the 5th annual Advocacy Day for Access and Independence! April 25, 2018 at 10 AM at the SC State House. Above this there is a photo of the State House.

Advocacy Day for Access & Independence was first created as an initiative in the State Plan for Independent Living in 2014, its inaugural gathering attracted over 300 South Carolina residents in May 2014. Since then, support has grown to 25 organizations statewide all unified in an effort to ensure people with disabilities have equal access and opportunity. People with disabilities face unnecessary and discriminatory barriers to transportation, employment, healthcare, and housing. Advocacy Day for Access and Independence will shine a light on these barriers in hopes of improving the lives of all South Carolinians.
