Advocacy can take many forms. At The Independence Center, we advocate with others through promoting self-advocacy with consumers, being involved in Community Organizing with consumers, impacting public policy and systems change through issue briefs and lobbying, and furthering emergency preparedness. All of these efforts are done to improve the lives of people with disabilities.
- If you need help with developing your self-advocacy skills, visit our Peer Support & Self-Advocacy page.
