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.

How we work with self-advocates

The self-advocates in our network do 3 important things: 

  1. Understand their rights.
  2. Work as a team to support and learn from each other.
  3. Speak up about what would make life better for them and other people with intellectual disabilities.
