The SAU1 Mission
Our mission is to support the self advocacy of people with disabilities for positive impact in our communities and in people’s lives.
Our vision is a world where individuals with developmental disabilities and their families are united to share knowledge, empower others, and use their voices to transform their lives and communities.
The SAU1 Story
Are you a person with a disability, a family member, or someone interested in making sure people have full lives? Maybe you have a friend with a disability, or you work to support people with disabilities. Even if you are just curious about advocacy and the rights of people with disabilities, you are in the right place!
Self Advocates United as 1 is a group of people who envision a world where people with developmental disabilities and their families are united to share knowledge, empower others, and use their voices to transform their communities and people’s lives. Our Board of Directors and voting members are people with disabilities from all over the state of Pennsylvania.
What do SAU1’s members do? We help each other and any people with disabilities and their families across PA. We hold letter-writing, e-mail, and phone workshops to help others learn how to advocate for change. We speak to anyone who will listen about people’s right to live the life they want and fight so everyone has that right. SAU1 teaches people at many levels about full inclusion and rights for all people.
SAU1 Advocacy is funded by a grant from the Pennsylvania Developmental Disabilities Council.
