Advocacy

Our self-advocacy group, Self Advocates of North Perth is a group of people who have developmental disabilities and advocate for equal citizenship, acceptance and belonging in the community. This group provides a forum to discuss disabilities and the importance of inclusion in our community, with topics like “We are All the Same,” “The Power of Words and Labels,” “Removing Barriers Through Education,” etc. The Self Advocates of North Perth promote a community where all—regardless of race, religion, or abilities—share the right to be here, to live life to the fullest and to be respected and treated with dignity.

The Self Advocates meet monthly, learn how to speak up for ourselves, discover self-direction, participate in fundraising, increase public awareness, advocate the government, do presentations, engage in learning opportunities, host dances, and have fun!
