The Northeast Independent Living Program, Inc. (NILP), held its' 29th Annual Legislative Forum & Breakfast on March 21st, 2014, at the Mass School of Law in Andover, Massachusetts. This was a very successful event with an attendance of around 100 people. It was a great gathering of NILP's Consumers combined with Massachusetts State and Municipal Leadership that covered a variety of timely topics that relate to all people with disabilities who wish to live independently in the community in the 52 cities and towns that NILP serves in Northeastern Massachusetts. Our key topic for discussion at this year's NILP Legislative Forum was "The One Care Plan - NILP's Role In The Community". Dr. Burton D. Pusch, Massachusetts One Care Ombudsman , was the Keynote Speaker at this years' NILP Legislative Forum and he talked about the importance of Disibility Civil Rights and provided a concise overview of his role in the One Care Plan. Speakers at this year's NILP Legislative Forum also included Massachusetts State Senators and Representatives, City/Town Officials, Congressional Aides, and others. There was also an engaging Legislative Panel present which included thoughtful dialogue and Q & A with consumers and others who attended this important event that covered issues and concerns in regards to the 52 cities and towns that NILP covers in Northeast Massachusetts for all people with disabilities who wish to live independently in the community via its' services, programs, and advocacy.
