Self-advocacy means speaking up for what you want or need. This session will introduce participants to the concept of self-advocacy and help participants understand how they might advocate for themselves in the future. Participants will learn:

  • How to identify issues in which they may choose to advocate for themselves or others
  • Their rights and responsibilities as a person with a disability
  • Strategies for setting and completing a self-advocacy goal
  • Strategies for working through barriers and challenges related to self-advocacy
  • Self-care related to self-advocacy

All workshops are free; there is no cost to attend. Workshops are intended for individuals who self-identify as having a disability, mental health condition, and/or chronic health condition. This is a hybrid workshop. That means participants are welcome to attend in-person at the A2I office in Iowa City OR  online, whichever they prefer. Advanced registration is required for all participants.
