Small Victories in Early 2017

Well Done GraphicWe’ve had some small victories over the past few months!

1. After years of advocacy, ALL Michigan Centers for Independent Living have been removed from the Michigan Association of Rehabilitation Organizations (MARO) member directory. (MARO is an association for subminimum wage employers.)

2. Tamera Collier is no longer the Executive Director of Disability Network West Michigan. Former Board Member Tracy Knight is currently serving as Interim Executive Director.

3. Sara Grivetti, Disability Network/Michigan CEO, has stepped down as Chair of the Statewide Independent Living Council (a major conflict of interest).

4. Disability Network/Michigan’s April 6 Public Input Session has been moved from SVRC (a sheltered workshop that pays 264 disabled employees less than minimum wage) to a more appropriate venue.
