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