Self-Advocacy ...is speaking up for yourself. It is making your own choices in life, big and small. It is learning about your rights and responsibilities. It is living the way you want to, and respecting the right of others to do the same.

Vision Statement

The Self-Advocacy Association is a strong voice for and by people with disabilities. SANYS promotes independence, empowerment, leading by example, communicating, networking and encouraging each other.

~Adopted by the Self-Advocacy Board of Directors on November 17, 1994.
