What: Self Advocacy Groups are groups of people with disabilities who get together and talk about what’s important to them. Members of self-advocacy groups speak out for themselves and others. They attend conferences and talk to other people with disabilities about voting, self-advocacy, self-determination, employment, and housing. They visit the Capitol and educate people about what’s important to them. Members of self-advocacy groups support each other in living the life they want to live. They have fun together!
