About Empower Us
What is Empower Us?
Empower Us is the work we do at Inclusion International to grow self-advocacy around the world.
Empower Us was developed following Inclusion International's global report on self-advocacy Self-Advocacy for Inclusion.
Who are we?
Our Empower Us work is led by us – people with intellectual disabilities who are self-advocates. Our Leadership Team are the self-advocate council members of Inclusion International.
To help us do our work we have an Action Team of self-advocate leaders from around the world.
What do we want?
Inclusion International want the inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities in our communities.
We know that an important part of making this happen is through self-advocacy. We want more people to be self-advocates and how to support self-advocacy and inclusion.
What do we do?
We give advice and support to Inclusion International members on self-advocacy and inclusion.
We do this by giving training and by creating and sharing information and resources like how-to guides for self-advocates, families and organisations.
