CILO's Disability Q*mmunity is a peer support and self-advocacy group for 2SLGBTQIA+ people with disabilities to talk about shared experiences and take action to make our communities safer and more accessible for us. People of all identities are welcome at the Disability Q*mmunity. Our next meeting will take place on February 13th at 6:00PM. Contact Dee Henry for more information!
Starting in mid-2024, our advocacy program will begin hosting CILO Community Walk and Rolls. These events will take place in local areas around Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, where we will invite consumers, neighbors, and community organizations to join us in a community audit. A community audit means that we, as community members, will come together to get to know each other and to assess the current state of our community in terms of accessibility and mobility freedom. CILO will provide a short educational experience so that all participants are aware of what accessibility means and how to notice and report ADA violations.
Please contact Dee Henry if you or your organization are interested in being part of the planning committee for CILO Walk and Rolls.
Self-Advocacy Situational Trainings will be offered throughout 2024. These trainings will offer a space for attendees to learn about self-advocacy as a concept and as a tool we can use when advocating for our needs as disabled people. We will explore how self-advocacy benefits us in a variety of situations including:
· As a high school-student with a disability
· As a college student with a disability
· As a tenant with a disability
· As a medical patient with a disability
If you have a request for a training on self-advocacy, email Dee Henry.
