Systems Advocacy at MCIL

The Governor's  OfficeSystems Advocacy deals with systems issues affecting people with disabilities, and getting them involved in community issues.  Nick Wilkie, Systems Advocate, helped organize this year’s Disability Day at the Capitol with the State Council on Disability, Direct Support Professionals of Minnesota, and the Centers for Independent Living in both Rochester and St. Cloud.  (See picture of participants outside Governors office writing comments.)

Nick also works with the Minnesota Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities to help prepare the disability agenda for legislative sessions.  In addition, he is working on systems issues including aging and disability, getting people with disabilities out to vote, housing, and grassroots efforts.
