On February 28th and March 1st, fourteen staff, one board member, and two consumers all went down to Madison for the annual Independent Living (IL) Days. There was the one day training with workshops on various issues the first day, followed by meeting will all our area legislators the following day. It was another successful IL Days this year with good workshops at the training, and it also provided a great opportunity to network with Independent Living staff from the other eight centers in the state. Many legislators were also receptive to our primary advocacy issue this year, a one-time funding increase and a continued cost of living adjustment in funding for independent living centers in Wisconsin. This year Angela Brenna won the Relentless Badger Award for advocacy from our center, for all the work she did this past year with the advocacy alerts around elimination of the Affordable Care Act and her work with the CCAT group.
