Speaking Up for Ourselves


People First's mission is to promote self-advocacy by speaking and acting on behalf of the rights and responsibilities of all people with developmental disabilities. One way of accomplishing this mission is to teach and train individuals how to speak up for themselves.

Understanding and respecting the fact that individuals with developmental disabilities have rights and responsibilities is a first step in speaking up.

This year's focus of People First of West Virginia is teaching individuals to tell their story to self-advocacy. Join us at a People First Group to learn how to speak up for yourself and for others.
