Self-Advocacy is topic for OSCIL lunch & learn workshop


The Ocean State Center for Independent Living (OSCIL) will be hosting a Lunch and Learn Workshop on Thursday, January 26 from 12-2 p.m. at OSCIL’s Pawtucket office at 175 Main Street in Pawtucket. This month’s topic is self-advocacy.  

Marjorie Waters and Ray Gagne from the Rhode Island Organizing Project (RIOP) will conduct a workshop on how to be an effective organizer and leader. Topics will include how to present your story to public officials and how to organize your peers around common concerns.

As part of OSCIL’s outreach and community education initiative, OSCIL offers these free “Lunch and Learn” workshops highlighting various solutions that can increase access in your home and community.

A sign language interpreter and relay conference captioning have been secured for this event. Call 738-1013 if you plan to attend. Seating is limited. Lunch (pizza) will be served.

United Way’s 211 Outreach RV will also be onsite to answer your questions on other resources and services available in Rhode Island.
