Impact: Featured Issue on Self-Advocacy for People with Disabilities (MN UCEDD)
The latest issue of Impact, a newsletter series from the Institute on Community Integration, Minnesota’s University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD), explores the history of the Self-Advocacy Movement, including its shared history with the Civil Rights and Feminist movements of the 1960s and ’70s.
In this Feature Issue on Self-Advocacy for People with Intellectual, Developmental and Other Disabilities, self-advocates and their supporters have contributed thirty-eight articles on a range of topics such as self-advocacy as a movement, racial tension, community organizing, normalizing neurodiversity, criminal justice, organizational inclusion, and personal reflections on “What Self-Advocacy Means to Me.”
The Institute on Community Integration (MN) and the Center for Community Inclusion and Disability Studies (ME) are members of the Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD), a national, nonprofit network of university-based centers and programs in every state and territory working to advance policy and practice for people living with disabilities and their families.
