What stories do you have to inform national activism?
Genetic Alliance Seeks Self-Advocacy Stories
The Genetic Alliance, the world’s leading nonprofit health advocacy organization, with input and support from The Arc and Family Voices, recently launched an online questionnaire asking experienced family advocates to share how they developed certain skills and created opportunities to influence systems. Their experiences will be turned into stories that inspire and encourage others to take action and improve the lives of people with disabilities and their families. If you or someone you know has a story to share, take their online survey before August 19. Parents (biological, adoptive, or foster), siblings, grandparents, other relatives, caregivers, and those with a health condition or disability are all welcome to participate.
