We are Inclusion International’s self-advocate council members, Mia, Sara, David, Mark and Luis Gabriel. We are pleased to introduce you to Empower Us, Inclusion International’s self-advocacy initiative.
Self-advocacy is when people with intellectual disabilities speak up for ourselves about the things that are important to us.
As self-advocates, we work for the inclusion of all people in a community.
Empower Us will work to develop a way for self-advocates around the world to connect with each other and share good ideas.
We have created a website selfadvocacyportal.com to share information about self-advocacy. We will also be developing training and tools to support self-advocates, families, and organisations around the world.
We would like to hear from you:
- If you want to find out more about self-advocacy
- If you need help with self-advocacy in your country or community or organisation
- If you or your organisation have resources or information about self-advocacy you would like to share
Please get in contact if you are interested in working with us on Empower Us.
Mia, Sara, David, Mark and Luis Gabriel
