Emerging Advocates Group meeting

Emerging Advocates Meeting - May 2022

This Emerging Advocates group was created for students with disabilities to talk with others so they could share ideas and learn tips together about advocacy. This group has grown to include dozens of emerging leaders who get together on quarterly calls, and we welcome new members. This group is led by and for people with disabilities. Of course, supporters are welcome.

Emerging Advocates Group

In April, 2019,  a group of college students with disabilities who attend Transition Postsecondary Education Programs for Students with ID came to Washington, DC to advocate for the Higher Education Act for themselves. They advocated alongside staff from those programs and others.
