Area Networks

Uniting for Change is expanding the self-advocacy network across Georgia by establishing strong Local Area Networks in five areas of the state. By growing the self-advocacy movement we are hoping that more people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the state of Georgia take control of their lives, their services, and their citizenship within their local communities, state, nation, and the world.

This graphic captures key highlights from our last in-person July Area Network Meetings in Clarkesville, Dublin, Dalton, Tifton, and Johns Creek, where we had 219 people that attended. 

  • We reviewed the expectations of U4C self-advocates.

  • We discussed the importance of Civic Engagement in self-advocacy and how to build relationships with our elected officials. 

  • We reviewed areas that self-advocates from across the state of Georgia want to focus on. 

  • We shared some helpful tips when speaking up for yourself.

  • We also talked about our 3 workgroups which are the outreach workgroup, the education workgroup and the impact and engagement workgroup.
