NJ Statewide Independent Living Council Public Forum

The New Jersey Statewide Independent Living Council (NJSILC) will be holding a Public Forum on Thursday September 20, 2018 at the Galloway Township Branch of the Atlantic County Library, located at 306 East Jimmie Leeds Road, Galloway. NJ 08205

The Forum will run from 12 noon to 2:00 p.m. in the branch’s Meeting Room.

Forums are opportunities for people with disabilities, their families, service providers and other interested parties to advise the Council about what challenges face people with disabilities in living as inclusively as possible in their communities.

NJSILC is a federally-mandated 17 member, governor-appointed organization in, but not part of, the NJ Department of Labor and Workforce Development.

To fulfill that mission, it seeks feedback from the public, particularly people with disabilities.
