This can result in new legislation, expanded benefits and services, as well as improved community service areas. ILC staff members, Board, and consumers address systems issues such as disability policy, civil rights, accessibility, funding for support services, discrimination, transportation, housing, and economic justice. These systems changes are sought at the local, state and national levels.
