National Council on Disability Monthly Bulletin for November 2008
Date:12/8/2008

t="_new">ncd@ncd.gov, or by providing public comment at our quarterly meetings.

The United States will be a stronger place when its 50 million plus citizens with disabilities are fully integrated into all aspects of American life. Over the last 30 years, our country has made significant progress in furthering opportunities for education, employment and independent living for people with disabilities through a broad range of programs that protect individuals with disabilities from discrimination in education, employment, housing and transportation. Despite these advances, significant barriers to achieving the goals of independence, inclusion, and empowerment for all people with disabilities still remain.

Through collaboration with its stakeholders, NCD will continue to pursue a focused agenda that will promote government programs and policies in support of full inclusion of all people with disabilities into the educational, economic and social fabric of the American community. NCD will use the expertise of its diverse membership and staff to identify barriers to inclusion and independence and to develop solutions. NCD will listen to people with disabilities across the country to identify emerging issues that need a response.

As the only agency in the Federal Government that addresses the issues of all people with disabilities, regardless of type or severity, NCD will be aggressive and resolute until people with disabilities in every corner of the land are no longer distinguished by a disability label, but are known as students, workers, parents, neighbors, and friends.

In closing, I want to thank you for your input and support over the last three decades. I also want to thank the current and past NCD members and staff who are too many to name. However, we remember them all for their significant contributions.

We believe that
