Subject: REVOLUTION OF EMPOWERMENT - KNOW THE LAW

JOIN THE REVOLUTION OF EMPOWERMENT. KNOW THE LAW. 

Lots of folks in the independent living movement know what Centers are
supposed to do.  Few know or understand what the law says that Statewide
Councils on Independent Living are supposed to do. 

The Alliance for Compliancer believes that inconsistent information being
provided through sporadic "trainings" by indiduals represented as "our
experts" has contributed to the problems that are coming to light. 

We believe that RSA has enforced the law inconsistently, with each
regional commissioner or other staff interpreting different regulations
differently and the central office sometimes even differently. 

We believe that NCIL is made up of lots of terrific people with good
intentions, and a few who have forgotten who they are supposed to
represent. 

We believe that only by reading and understanding Title VII of the
Rehabilitation Act can people in the IL movement take it back and make it
ours again. 

We believe that CSAVR is behind the recent attacks on independent living
in Alaska, Ohio, Minnesota and Texas -- and who knows where else by now. 

We're not telling you that the sky is falling.  We're telling you that
white stuff you're starging to notice is from the ceiling that has started
to crack.  We're asking folks to help keep it from tumbling down on us
all.
