Rebuilding lives after spinal cord injury.

Advocacy Task Force

The NYC Spinal Advocacy Task Force has been set-up to ensure that the voices of people with spinal cord injuries and other disabilities are heard and taken into consideration when it comes to legislation and public policy.

Keep the Momentum Rolling

United Spinal’s Annual Roll on Capitol Hill (ROCH), has allowed our members to join with advocates from across the county to visit with and educate Congressional leaders about the policy issues that impact the health, independence and quality of life of individuals living with spinal cord injuries and disorders, including disabled veterans. The Advocacy Task Force will reinforce those efforts by engaging our local government representatives in the conversation to ensure that our voices are heard.

Monthly meetings and email updates will keep members informed of legislation and policy initiatives that affect their everyday lives. Together we will work to impact change and ensure that people with SCI/D and other disabilities receive the services they need to fully participate in their community.
