Individual & Systems Advocacy
mILp works in the community to make a difference in the lives of individuals with disabilities by removing barriers and focusing efforts on accessibility to public services, education, and benefits. As an independent living center, we are at the forefront of advocating for access, choice, and self-determination for individuals with disabilities. mILp can help advocate for the rights of individuals living with any type of disability on both an individual and a systems level.
mILp helps individuals learn to advocate for their individual personal rights. These rights may include health care benefits, access to health care and housing, as well as many more essential services. Self-advocacy is one of the most important skills anyone can have in their tool kit. mILp is dedicated to helping individuals learn to advocate for themselves in order to best maximize their choices and live an independent life.
mILp works to change policies and remove the barriers that people living with disabilities face in their everyday lives. mILp staff and consumers partner to facilitate system changes, including those related to government policies, transportation, public accommodation, and housing.
