Sangha Unity Network, Inc. (SUN) was awarded the Expanding Self-Advocacy grant in 2018 from Georgia Council on Developmental Disabilities (GCDD). SUN has been working with self-advocates throughout Georgia to develop and establish a viable, grassroots, active self-advocacy network. Self-advocacy is not a program; it is a movement run by people with intellectual and developmental disabilities who speak up about what is important, make choices that matter and go after dreams. Self-advocates are supported by allies (people without disabilities) who believe in, advocate with, and support the self-advocacy movement. Self-advocacy has been growing across the US and in Georgia since the 1970s. The Expanding Self-Advocacy Grant from GCDD provides for formal structure and formal supports to grow the advocacy movement over the next few years in Georgia.
