We would like to thank Inclusion China for translating our Global Report on Self-advocacy and for sharing information about their national self-advocacy Forum held on March 16th.
Following their participation at Inclusion International Self-advocacy Leadership Summit held in Florida last year, Inclusion China was encouraged to organise their own self-advocacy forum at national level.
The forum was attended by more than 30 self-advocates from Beijing, Xiamen, Tangshan, Changsha, Guangzhou, etc. Self-advocate Ms Lai, who attended the Global Conference in Florida shared her experience with the group and encouraged other to discuss what it was important to them.
Self-advocates worked in groups to share experiences about independent travel, independent living and inclusive employment.
