Policy Agendas

Group of 20+ advocates gathered in Albany in front of an I Love New York sign.

CIDNY advocacy goals aim to ensure that people with disabilities have the tools they need to live independently, provide for their financial needs, and enjoy equal opportunity.  We promote an environment where people with disabilities are recognized and respected members of the community and are active in advocating on issues that affect all of us. To this end, CIDNY advises public officials on ways to make public services work better, monitors public and private initiatives that serve people with disabilities, and offers constructive solutions to problems we see.
