Website: Allies in Self-Advocacy
The Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AIDD) held nine Self-Advocacy Summits in 2011 and 2012 involving all of the States and Territories that provided the opportunity for self-advocates and their allies to share their perspectives on the state of the self-advocacy movement across the country. The goal was to learn what each state was doing around self-advocacy, help each state develop and present a state plan to strengthen their activities around this area, and develop national policy recommendations for AIDD and its partnering organizations. Overall, the purpose was to strengthen and enhance self-advocacy efforts in the states and nationally. This website contains the final report, along with pictures and presentations from the events.
