Our group began more than 18 years ago with the Southern Movement in Central Florida. We are adults with developmental disabilities who believe in
Being treated as equals
Being given the same choices, rights, and chances to speak up and become empowered as all, and
Being able to learn from our experiences and mistakes like everyone else.
Members have served as appointees on state and local committees and boards (FDDC and Family Care Council), as well as graduated from Partners in Policymaking.
