Who we are

Self-Advocates in Uniting for Change speak up about what is important, make choices that matter, and pursue their dreams. This network is led by a group of committed self-advocacy leaders who guide Uniting for Change’s advocacy efforts.  

The U4C Leadership Collective is ever-changing based on who is interested in giving their time and ideas to the network as a whole. These Leadership Collective Members mentor, teach, and  work to grow self-advocacy across the state through committees. Self-advocates are supported by allies who believe in, advocate with, and support the self-advocacy movement.
