Grassroots Advocacy

“If you’re not at the table, you’re on the menu”Washington political saying

The grassroots network project is a state-wide effort to connect and inform people with disabilities and their allies about issues that affect people with disabilities. Through grassroots organizing we can work for changes that will better ourselves, our families, and our communities.

Individual groups meet to discuss, learn about, and address issues of importance to their communities as well as state and national issues affecting people with disabilities. Advocates develop strategies and take action to address issues of injustice. Through working together to solve problems, members develop a sense of their own personal power.

Each Independent Living Center (ILC) has a staff person responsible for developing and maintaining the group. Because members decide which issues they want to work on, and what they want to do to address those issues, each group around the state is a little bit different. To find out more or join a group, please contact the ILC staff person who works in your area.
