Supporting Grassroots Efforts

Grande Ballroom B

Self-Advocates Raising the Heat and Leading the Way

Saturday, November 4
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
Location: Grande Ballroom B

Target Audience: Self-Advocates

This presentation will examine the changing dynamics within the Self-Advocate Coalition of Kansas (SACK) and their support system, The Arc of Douglas County. SACK, through a collaboration with the Kansas Council on Developmental Disabilities, participated in a grant opportunity that developed unique leadership skills that resonated with self-advocates. Through the training provided at the Kansas Leadership Center in Wichita, Kansas self-advocates gained skills and tools that have strengthened advocacy efforts in local communities. Leadership is not a position, but an activity that anyone can engage in at anytime or any place.
