In response to the coronavirus SANYS has taken precautions to best promote the health and well being of everyone. Each region has reduced staff for the next two weeks. Our regional coordinators are communicating any scheduling changes directly within each region. So you may find that some meetings will be happening by phone or video conference or may be temporarily postponed. If you have questions regarding SANYS events and regional office hours please contact your Regional Coordinator. We look forward to resuming full staffing and activities as usual in the near future.
SANYS is doing our first fundraising campaign for #GivingTuesday through the #NYGivesDay website. You can help someone speak up by donating to our campaign and sharing the linkto help us reach our goal of 500 donors! You can also download this flyerto print and share with friends.
Everyday, across New York State, we are working hard to reach more people with the message of self advocacy. Everyday we see people with disabilities gain confidence, pride in themselves as a self advocate, and an understanding that they are a part of a larger group of people seeking to be heard and seen for who they are. Everyday we work together to seek systems change and create more power through a collective voice. If you are a believer, join us in helping to grow our outreach: through a new website, greater youth outreach, and more connections between people in the self advocacy movement.
