ACDI - Working toward Inclusion for all

About the Committee:

The primary purpose of the Advisory Committee on Disability Issues (ACDI) is to advise City Council and all City departments on issues related to persons with physical, developmental and mental health disabilities. A secondary purpose is to advocate on behalf of persons with disabilities to other authorities which formulate policy and/or offer programs that affect people with disabilities. ACDI recognizes both visible and invisible disabilities.
