Self-Advocacy Leadership Manual



This Leadership Manual is useful to self-advocates as an easy-to-use guide to help start a self-advocacy group and/or strengthen an existing group. The sections make finding information easy, and activities are included throughout.

This Leadership Manual helps support the learning and strengthening of rights, self-determination, choices and decisions through the following sections:

  • Self-Advocacy
  • Spreading the Message
  • Recruiting Members
  • Your First Meeting!
  • Leaders and Leadership
  • Finding Your Focus
  • Support
  • Mission and Vision Statements
  • Group Structure
  • Getting Things Done

This resource was updated in December 2017 with some new tricks and tools for groups as well as questions and activities to help get self-advocates moving toward their advocacy goals. No matter how long a group has been around, there’s something in the Leadership Manual that can be used!
