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. This was quite exciting to see, so this group was developed for students with disabilities to talk with others so they could continue to share ideas and learn tips together about advocacy. That initial group has grown to include dozens of emerging leaders who get together on these quarterly calls, and we welcome new members.

This group is led by and for people with disabilities. Of course, supporters are welcome.
