2018 Statewide Self-Advocacy Conference

Self Advocacy: For the People, By the People

2018 New York State Self Advocacy Conference

It is time that everyone recognize that Self-Advocacy is about people standing up for their rights as citizens.  After all, we are all citizens in a nation founded “for the people by the people”.  We have the same rights as all other citizens. So let’s speak up to make our lives and the lives of others better.

About the Conference

The Statewide Self-Advocacy Conference is a great opportunity to meet and network with self-advocates from across New York State. Come learn about major issues of the day and the importance of speaking up for yourselves and others. In recent years, we’ve had over 800 people attend this great event, participating in workshops, focus groups and keynote presentations.

The registration deadline is August 1st, 2018. However, we recommend registering early. We have had to close registration before the deadline in the past due to high numbers. You can pay when you register or pay after you have registered. Payments are due (postmarked) by August 1st, 2018.

NEW THIS YEAR: Group Registration Forms! We are asking groups that are registering together to fill out a paper group registration form. You can find the group registration form on pages 11 & 12 of the registration packet.
