Please join the Administration for Community Living (ACL) this March in observance of Brain Injury Awareness Month. ACL will host Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Stakeholder Day on March 3, 2020, and a brown bag lunch during Brain Injury Awareness Day on Capitol Hill on March 4, 2020.
Brain Injury Awareness Day is hosted by the Congressional Brain Injury Task Force, chaired by Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-N.J.). See note below for more information.
ACL’s TBI Stakeholder Day is an opportunity for members of the TBI community to come to Washington, DC to discuss important issues around TBI services, supports, and systems and to learn from other stakeholders, brain injury survivors, family members, support networks, and state and federal representatives.
Please RSVP for TBI Stakeholder Day and the brown bag lunch by February 21, 2020, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include any reasonable accommodation requests (such as ASL interpreter, large print materials, or reserved front row seating) along with your RSVP.
