The Ohio Statewide Independent Living Council (Ohio SILC) stands in solidarity with our communities across Ohio that are experiencing inequity and injustice.

Every year in Washington DC members of Ohio’s disability community have marched with others from across the country to raise awareness of the issues that impact the disability community across the nation. This march is led by a banner quoting Martin Luther King Jr. “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

We stand with those speaking out against systemic discrimination, your voices are being heard. As an organization, we always look to support systemic advocacy that will lead to greater equality and inclusion. We know within every community, there are individuals with disabilities that are impacted. People of all backgrounds and ability deserve equality, and right now our communities of color are using their voices to bring about change for a stronger future.
