Advocacy training

The Community Support Network at Westchester Institute for Human Development (WIHD) has an excellent program, Hear Our Voices, aimed at empowering, educating and developing social connections for self-advocates. Its educational programming explores relevant topics for advocacy, and in doing so teaches those with I/DD how to become leaders and make the changes they need.

The president of this wonderful group is Brendan Klein, and vice president is Nichole Hastings, both at WIHD.
