This is not a drill! Our local disability community and organizational partners will have the opportunity to provide feedback to lead representatives from FEMA and DHS on April 11th in Ventura! Please RSVP to: anna.hinken@hq.dhs.gov

It’s not often we get to be heard like this!

Save the date for an upcoming U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Stakeholder Meeting on Wednesday April 11, 2018, from 11:30 to 1:30 pm at the Independent Living Resource Center, 702 County Square Dr. Ventura, CA 93003

We are interested in hearing feedback from all stakeholders in Ventura and the surrounding areas related to disability access issues in connection with the 2017 fires and mudslides. We are especially interested in your experiences, challenges, and recommendations related to accessibility for persons with disabilities.

During the April 11th meeting, you will hear from DHS Officer for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Cameron Quinn, from Linda Mastandrea, Director of FEMA’s Office of Disability Integration and Coordination, and from Regis Phelan, Acting Director of FEMA’s Office of Equal Rights. If you wish to participate, please RSVP by Friday, March 30, 2018 by sending an email to anna.hinken@hq.dhs.gov
