Register for a Disability Awareness & Cultural Competence Training

This training provides an overview of the history and philosophy of the Independent Living Movement and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The comparison of the history of the Civil Rights Movement and the Disability Movement has changed the way services must be delivered today in a culturally competent, person centered model.  This training will also cover intersectionality and the importance of language in a culturally competent organization.

No more than 4 people per organization may register for this training. Contact Gabe at gfonseca@nilp.org to ask about training options for organizations! 

Upcoming Training Dates

  • Tuesday, February 2 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. (EST)

Why Is This Important?

There is an increased need for disability education and cultural competence training. The disability community often refers to the quote from our civil rights activists: “Nothing About Us Without Us”. This is our commitment to being your partner in “Equal Access for All”.
