July 22nd, 2017 – This last Saturday Legislator Kennedy (R-Nesconset) celebrated the 27th anniversary of the American’s with Disabilities Act with SILO. SILO, which stands for Suffolk Independent Living Organization is a group that encourages and advocates for those with disabilities. SILO runs many programs which enable those who are challenged to live independent and fulfilling lives.
The American’s with Disabilities Act has been an amazing benefit to those who are disabled. The ADA ensures that disabled people do not face discrimination in employment, transportation, public accommodations, communications and access to state and local government’ programs. “I am proud of the work that SILO does, and I am proud to be an American celebrating 27 years of the American’s with Disabilities Act,” said Legislator Kennedy.
