Our Officers, Council, and staff all include people with intellectual disabilities.
The self-advocacy work that I’m really proud of is helping people with disabilities find their voice and speak up for what they want.Tia Nelis, Global Self-advocacy Summit 2020
How we work with self-advocates
The self-advocates in our network do 3 important things:
- Understand their rights.
- Work as a team to support and learn from each other.
- Speak up about what would make life better for them and other people with intellectual disabilities.
