Description

Advocacy - "When the going gets tough, the tough get going." We will explore the nature of advocacy: when it is successful and when it fails. Using videos and personal anecdotes, we will cover the Willowbrook days to a period of program growth and now to what appears as a period of retrenchment. We will include efforts to achieve change from a self-advocate, parent and community organizing perspective.
