Graphic: The Disability Rights and Independent Living Movement

Boston Center for Independent Living

The first independent living center to be established on the East Coast, BCIL was founded in 1974 to secure funding and provide support to enable people with significant disabilities to live independently in the community. In 1979, BCIL started a direct advocacy program for accessible transit issues and personal assistance services funding. The DRILM collection includes oral histories with founders and key activists.
