You Can Make A Difference! Help Support SANYS' "Campaign for the Future!"Every dollar you contribute will be used to help SANYS spread its message of "Speaking Up for Ourselves and Others."
Your generous contributions will be used for:Providing Scholarships to our Regional and State Self-Advocacy Conferences! Although we try to keepour events very affordable, there are still people who don't have the funds to attend our events. There's so much information and networking that they miss! Help us open these conferences to many more people.Helping Us Expand SANYS U! Since 2011, we've been delivering this great course that teaches people about their rights and how to get what they want. We would like to take the teaching material, which is paper and PowerPoint and develop it as a more interactive experience on iPads.Supporting Our Networks! There are many important people and organizations that we need to stay in touch with and learn from! Our collective voices are always more powerful together! Your contributions will help to send self-advocates to represent SANYS at national conferences and other important events. Funding Our New Connections Through Technology In the "old days", it was easier to connect with self-advocates. However, through our powerful advocacy efforts, people are now more involved in their communities, living, volunteering and working there, instead of just being grouped together in a large day hab or sheltered workshop. That's fantastic, but it means we have to find better ways to connect with each other in addition to occasional in-person meetings or events. Through online video conferences, we are now able to connect with almost 100 self-advocates at one time. Of course, this doesn't come free and there are significant costs involved, along with the expenses of maintaining our web site, building a presence in social media and modernizing our database system.
In this climate of system funding issues, huge changes in our systems of supports and a difficult economy, self-advocacy is more important NOW than ever before!
