Preserving Employment Opportunities for Individuals with Disabilities
The Coalition for the Preservation of Employment Choice, Inc. is a coalition of families, caregivers, and other stakeholders working to preserve employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities.
The Coalition for the Preservation of Employment Choice, Inc. supports the elimination of barriers to employment and the expansion of employment opportunities for all. As policy makers consider proposals for supporting individuals with disabilities and expanding CIE (Competitive Integrated Employment), they should not be allowed to dismiss those who may not have access to or have the ability to retain competitive employment. Eliminating Section 14(c) would effectively reduce the number and diversity of employment opportunities available. All people, regardless of ability, should have the right to work.
