Subject: Policy Alert: Tell WIOA Advisory Committee to Phase Out Section 14(c)

NFB Family:

What a fantastic national convention! I hope by now that all of you 
have made it back home safely, and since our Federation work never 
stops, I hope that you are reenergized and ready for action.

As you all know, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act 
established an advisory committee to examine how we can increase 
integrated and competitive employment for individuals with 
disabilities. During national convention, Dr. Schroeder and I 
reported that the committee is currently formulating their 
recommendations. The responsible phase-out of Section 14(c) must be 
one of the committee's top recommendations, but it will only happen 
if we make our voices heard.

There are two ways to contact the committee. The easiest way is to go 
to <http://www.nfb.org/ice>www.nfb.org/ice. Here, simply fill out the 
form, and a pre-drafted email will be automatically sent to the 
committee. Alternatively, you can email 
<mailto:integratedcompetitiveemployment at dol.gov>integratedcompetitiveemployment at dol.gov. 

The comment deadline is Tuesday, July 28. Other groups have already 
gotten underway, so let's make sure the Federation has the largest 
and most powerful blitz!

Thank you all for your help!

Yours in the fight for fair wages,

It's TIME to Eliminate Subminimum Wages for People with Disabilities

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the 
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise 
the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create 
obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life 
you want; blindness is not what holds you back.

<https://nfb.org/make-gift>Make a gift to the National Federation of 
the Blind and help ensure all blind Americans live the lives they want.
