DRA is working to amplify the voices of people with disabilities in the communities to live, work and socialize. We are working to guide people with lived experience of disability most impacted by oppressive systems to gain the support to direct their own lives.
There are three types of advocacy
Self-Advocacy is speaking up for oneself!
Individual advocacy is having someone to stand beside you if you think somethings unfair, or that someone is treating you badly and you would like to do something to change it
Systems Advocacy is about changing policies, laws or rules that impact how someone lives their life.
