Advocacy is the root, the very foundation, of independent living. Through advocacy, Access to Independence is changing and improving San Diego and Imperial Counties one person and one issue at a time; and by extension, positively impacting a much broader community. Decisions made regarding access and improvements for the disabled community affect us all, and through education and advocacy we can create positive change.
We are the voice that educates elected officials regarding issues relevant to the disabled community. We champion the causes of individual consumers to ensure their particular needs are met. We give individuals with disabilities a voice so that they can advocate for their needs in a given arena. By telling one chapter at a time, we’re rewriting the story of the disabled community, filling it with hope and promise.
