Transportation Works: Stop, Collaborate, and Listen!, Moody Gardens Hotel, Wednesday, 15. January 2020


Transportation Works:  Stop, Collaborate, and Listen!
Texas State Independent Living Council (SILC) has partnered with the Valley Association for Independent Living Mounting Horizons Center For Independent Living (MHCIL) to host the fourth annual accessible transportation summit.  Transportation Works: Stop, Collaborate, and Listen! will be held in Galveston, Texas and will focus on efforts to expand inclusive transportation for all Texans.
Through this initiative, Texas SILC hopes to initiate a stakeholder dialogue comprising of traditional transportation collaborators as well as organizations that comprise the coalition of proponents of the Independent Living Movement and create sustainable change by taking steps to increasing accessible transportation in Texas.  There are nearly 1.9 million Texans with disabilities who report not leaving their home due to inadequate transportation services (TCDD website, , October 20, 2015). This event will also focus on methods for consumers to create change in the community by hearing from transportation experts and policymakers on plans for Galveston and Texas, learning advocacy techniques and strategies for engaging policymakers, and discovering new innovations or resources that may increase mobility in your community.  
The accessible transportation summit will be held on January 15, 2019, in Galveston, Texas from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm at the Moody Gardens Hotel. 
Come participate in helping keep Texans on the move and ensuring Texans with disabilities can thrive in their communities.
