IR supports Individual, self, and systems advocacy for persons with disabilities.
Individual advocacy is an action on behalf of, for, and most importantly with an individual, which may include confronting unacceptable conditions that infringe upon daily living.
Self-advocacy addresses specific issues in one’s own life by advocating on one’s own behalf like filing a complaint or talking to the local government to get sidewalks installed in your neighborhood
Systems advocacy is working to create change within a system, agency or jurisdiction. This can include speaking out on policy, laws, and practices that affect people with disabilities.
This is a grant-funded service.
