The Vaughan PVA maintains a program of advocacy in which local, state, and federal laws will be monitored in order to ensure compliance with mandates relative to accessibility and barrier-free design issues. The program will advocate on behalf of PVA members and all disabled persons using all available resources, including testimony, public speaking, and representation.
Areas of Concern and Interest:
PROTECTING YOUR RIGHTS
Through Vaughan's advocacy program, PVA offers the latest disability rights information and resources related to health, travel, housing, voting, and more. In addition, we help you find specific information about the Americans with Disabilities Act, state laws, and other laws that protect your rights — and the rights of all individuals with a disability. The PVA also networks with several other nonprofit disability advocates to communicate, collaborate, and reach common objectives.
PVA Vaughan Chapter advocates for individuals with SCI/D by speaking out on important and relevant local issues at our Illinois State Capital and works with federal agencies such as the Department of Justice to ensure that nondiscrimination laws are implemented and enforced. Please contact email@example.com to be involved in a committee or if you need assistance.

PVA works with policymakers to implement legislation to improve benefits and healthcare services for veterans and their families.
Our Legislation Program plans, coordinates, implements, and advocates for much-needed policy changes with the State of Illinois, the United States Congress, and federal departments and agencies. Through our relationships with federal, state, and local policymakers, PVA ensures that veterans, their dependents, and survivors, receive the best benefits and highest quality health care available. These benefits include compensation, pensions, insurance, housing, and employment. PVA also networks with several Veteran Service Organizations to communicate each other's needs, organize, and achieve common issues. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to be involved in a committee or if you need assistance.
