Advocacy and Civic Engagement
Purpose of the Program
We aim to impact systems and policy change that create inclusive communities where the whole of a person’s intersectional identity can be seen and celebrated. We do this by providing culturally and linguistically diverse individuals with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities and their families with resources, trainings, and a safe space to develop and express their stories, while being supported on paths to advocate for the change they believe in.
