The most effective voices for advancing the interests of the people we serve and their families actually are the people we serve and their families — including WeAchieve’s “Game Changers” team of trained self-advocates.
Hero & Game Changer
From the moment Kerri Bain joined WeAchieve (CHI) in June 2005, she was recognized as a woman with many talents. She has overcome every obstacle and done so with a fearless spirit.
Standing Up for Community
When Mohamed Agabein spoke at the Challenge Talks, it was his first time in front of WeAchieve people. His topic was people with and without disabilities getting together.
The issues we fight for:
- Changes in laws and policies that are barriers to inclusion
- Funding for what people with developmental disabilities and their
families want and need
- Making sure elected officials and policymakers hear the concerns of
people with developmental disabilities and their families
