Disability Advocate

Disability Advocate

A disability advocate is someone who wants to show their support by educating others about a disabling condition. Disability advocates are agents for change and they can accomplish this goal in a variety of ways. Whether you want to dive into an advocacy role full time or volunteer when you have a little time in your schedule, being an advocate is something everyone can do.

Advocates who want to be involved in helping raise awareness of a disability should let their volunteer coordinators know how much time they want to spend for the organization and to what extent. Some people only want to spend a few hours a month answering phones, while others have more time to organize fundraisers and charity events. No matter what your level of commitment is, it will always be appreciated. Through advocacy you will become the voice of those who otherwise may not be heard.
