Self Advocates Application Form

YAI self advocates lobby in Albany, speak at large events like YAI's Central Park Challenge, and partner with organizations such as the Self-Advocacy Association of New York State, among other activities. The primary goal of self advocates is to educate community members and staff about inclusion and the needs and rights of individuals with I/DD. Our group meets on a regular basis in different locations throughout New York. Because of COVID, our meetings are currently held online.
