We want to be strong self-advocates. Here is what we need to do this.

  • We need workshops on how to be leaders.
  • We need information about issues to be in plain language. Plain words help us understand.
  • We need people and money to support self-advocacy. We need self-advocacy groups to help us. That way, we can plan things that give us a say in our communities and what governments decide.
  • We need a provincial self-advocacy group and more Summits so we can feel united and share what we have done.

Here is what some groups have done so self-advocates have a stonger voice:

  • The Central Alberta Self Advocates Plain Language Society puts papers into plain words for PDD and other community groups so everyone can understand. Click here to find out more.
  • The Central Alberta Advocacy Network (CAAN) has a leadership retreat each September. Central region self-advocates get together to share, learn and celebrate.
  • Self-advocates in the Central region told PDD what should be part of its plan for the next three years. Click here to read what they said.
  • Self-advocates in Northeast Alberta help plan and take part in a regional conference with PDD, staff and familes each year.
