Grantee: Idaho Self Advocate Leadership Network


Mission: The mission of the Idaho Self-Advocacy Leadership Network is to advance equality through growth, education, and advocacy by providing opportunities so that individuals with disabilities may achieve their greatest unique potential.

Project Funded ($3,000): Building organizational capacity from 4 to 8 chapters in the state led by people with developmental disabilities. “We call ourselves ‘self-advocates’ and work to create opportunities so other people with developmental disabilities empower themselves to become involved, learn leadership skills, mentor each other to be advocates on public policies, and participate in other organizations, boards and coalitions not as tokens but as valued, contributing members working for change in our community and our state.”
