ICS Member Civics League

In 2015 we began hearing from ICS members about their desire for a new group where they could support each other in becoming more civically engaged. The ICS Civics League held its first meeting in October 2016 and quickly grew into a forum for New Yorkers with disabilities who are passionate about advocating for themselves and their communities.

Members of the Civics League share ideas, tools, information and questions about how to effectively work for changes that are important to them. Civics League members have discussed and taken action on issues ranging from voting registration to homecare, housing to healthcare, and access to public transit, among others.

ICS membership is not required to participate in the Civics League. Everyone is welcome.

Monthly meetings are held at the ICS Brooklyn Member Center, at 25 Elm Place. The Civics League action committee, which is open to all, sets the monthly agenda and plans the meetings.

Advocacy isn’t rocket science – it just takes a little organization, information and persistence. And, like everyone else, people with disabilities have a lot at stake. Watch Civics League member Michelle Jones as she discusses the important of Medicaid on NY1’s In Focus.

Find the next Civics League meeting date below. Come and bring a friend. Please RSVP so the group can be sure to have enough materials and refreshments on hand for everyone. To RSVP call the ICS events hotline at 1.877.958.8427 or email MCL@icsny.org.

ICS does not take sides in partisan politics or urge our members to do so.
