The Disability Caucus participation in S17 was main topic of discussion

Proposal – A Teach-In on the 15th or the 16th

Consensus

Paula – ADA & history of DIA

Connie – Mental Health Services and Supports -suggested we contact Carla Rabbinowitz

Danny – Long term care and Medical Apartheid

Julie – Marriage inequality (disincentives to marriage for benefit recipients)

Should there be a cultural part to the teach-in? Performances? Or should that be separate? Teach in on Sat. Performance on Sun?
Not sure.

Also, no consensus on whether to move the meeting from Union Sq. to Liberty Sq. We will try again next week.
