Advocating Change Together (ACT) asked us to work together on this exciting program. It’s a leadership development training for people across age and disability.
Advocating Change Together is a nationwide leader in developing and presenting human rights training to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
A group of two self-advocates and an ally will present to a group of 10-12 learners. We can meet at your school or another location where youth are gathered together, or choose a location that works well for the group. People with all disabilities of all ages are encouraged to join, and we would like youth representation. There are 12 sessions.
