New Publications Offer Advocacy Help for Ohio’s DD Community
July 20, 2021 / Advocacy
Today the Adult Advocacy Centers (AACs) are releasing two new publications to help people with developmental disabilities (DD) become better advocates:
- An Advocacy Guidebook for People with Developmental Disabilities outlines strategies for developing advocacy skills and information to help victims of crime navigate the criminal justice system.
- A Reference Guide to DD Self-Advocacy Groups in Ohio is a comprehensive list of contact information for statewide and county-level groups throughout the state. The publication is a joint effort between the AACs and Ohio’s DD Council, with support from the state’s independent living centers. Additional contributions to this list from the community are welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope that these publications inspire self-advocates to find more ways to come together and make their voices heard.
