AccessAbility strives to obtain positive changes on the local, state, and federal level. Whether it is done individually or with others, advocacy leads to problem solving, removing barriers, and increasing quality of life. Therefore, it is central to our mission here at AccessAbility. We offer both individual and systems advocacy for our community.
We believe that obtaining self-advocacy skills is the key for true empowerment and independence. In gaining self-advocacy skills, individuals can learn:
how to communicate with businesses and employers to obtain needed accommodations.
how to participate in the legislative process, as well as how to register and vote.
