Why self-advocacy (still) matters

In 2011, the Disability News Service[1] reported devastating cuts to the funding for self-advocacy organizations in the UK.  They reported that the number of groups who are members of People First had dropped from 120 – 97.

We asked self-advocates to tell us what self-advocacy is and why it still matters to them.  In the blog posts that follow self-advocates tell us what they think.
