When we talk about “grassroots” at self-advocacy, we mean the most basic – and most important – advocacy effort – starting and growing strong self-advocacy groups and bringing our message of SPEAK UP FOR OURSELVES AND OTHERS to the community.

Our Grassroots Presenters and Board Members spend a lot of time around the state helping to start groups and support self-advocacy groups. They also provide presentations to community groups such as human service agencies, schools, government agencies and religious organizations.
