Individuals participating in ALP-NC attend advocacy training, resource development, and skill-building workshops. Topics covered include the history of the disability rights movement, self-advocacy, independent living, employment, building inclusive communities, natural supports, and legislative issues.
During these sessions, you can practice new skills in a comfortable and safe environment, build a network of people from diverse cultural backgrounds and life experiences, and learn from national experts.
ALP-NC is about systems change – creating, working toward, and achieving a vision of shared values about people with disabilities. It’s about becoming confident in yourself, competent in the knowledge and information you’ll receive, and comfortable sharing the life experiences and expertise you bring to the program.
