About
The IFC policy workgroup is focused on a comprehensive initiative to advance systemic change for individuals with disabilities through a coordination of policy, advocacy and education efforts.
The overall strategy for this group is built upon two main tactics to create a national advocacy movement for the inclusion of people with disabilities in all areas of physical activity and sport:

  1. To encourage relevant advocacy organizations to build an IFC agenda into their efforts.
  2. To target key areas that can be influenced by persuading professional and trade associations to encourage their individual members to take action.

Long-Term Policy Goals:

  • To advance federal and state policy to expand physical activity and athletic opportunities for individuals with disabilities.
  • To educate policymakers about the importance of healthy lifestyles for individuals with disabilities and the need to adopt an inclusive approach to policy reform.
  • To increase Coalition membership to include more national, state and local organizations, experts and advocates that can serve as referral systems and networks to connect people with disabilities to physical activity opportunities in their local community.
  • To advance the policy initiatives of the other IFC workgroups.
