SA The Advocate

The Advocate, Spring 2014

Self-advocates from Minute Man Arc participated in a state-wide conference on March 20, 2015, on preventing abuse of people with developmental disabilities. Sponsored by Triangle and held at UMass Boston, the summit included an open discussion where advocates and staff shared stories about experiencing abuse. They also outlined what is needed from society as a whole to stop those situations from happening. By raising awareness and support, self-advocates like those from Minute Man Arc will be better able to effect change in the future.
