Songs of self-advocacy and self-determination

 

“Where We Belong”
A song about Texas Advocates

Listen to us

We’ve got a lot to say
We’re Texas Advocates
We’ll show you the way

We’re Texas Advocates

Standing Strong

We want to live in our community
Where everyone belongs
That’s where everyone belongs

For too many years

We were held back
But now we are speaking out
We’re getting on track

Won’t you help us grow?
We’ve got a lot to do
Listen to us
We’re speaking to you

We want our own homes
A good job too
We want relationships
We could be a friend to you
We want relationships
A little romance too

We’re Texas Advocates

Standing Strong

We want to live in our community
Where everyone belongs
That’s where everyone belongs

Get to know us

We’re just like you
We want to live our lives
Doing the things we can do

Self-advocacy
Is in all of us
We’ve part of a movement
There’s no stopping us
It’s a civil rights movement
There’s no stopping us

We’re Texas Advocates

Standing Strong

We want to live in our community
Where everyone belongs
That’s where everyone belongs
