Lifting Our Voices Together

The 2023 Florida Self-Advocacy Conference

August 18-20, 2023 / Rosen Plaza in Orlando

FL SAND Sponsorship Opportunities

Invest in Florida's Growing Self-Advocacy Movement

The Florida Self-Advocacy Conference is the largest gathering of self-advocates in the state. More than 150 self-advocates, their allies, parents, and providers are expected in support of the self-advocacy movement in Florida. This conference is also unique in that the majority of its trainers and speakers are self-advocates.


Hosted by the FL SAND Fellows Leadership Program in support of the FL SAND network of grassroots self-advocacy groups and all self-advocates in the state, the 2023 conference will include training from the Breaking Barriers Training Academy and break-out sessions focused on expanding the self-advocacy movement in Florida as well as positively impacting people with disabilities in all aspects of life.

FL SAND, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is soliciting conference sponsorships that will help cover the costs of travel, personal care assistants, and other related costs to support people with intellectual 

and developmental disabilities receiving training in self-advocacy and leadership and to support its grassroots advocacy projects.


A sponsorship offers your organization the opportunity to not only showcase your products and services to this important audience of self-advocate thought leaders but to also herald your support for more vibrant and inclusive opportunities for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Florida. Your support will help Florida's self-advocates continue to make a difference in their communities and throughout the state for years to come! 

About Self-Advocacy

Self-advocates are persons with intellectual or developmental disabilities who speak for themselves and participate in decisions about their lives. They promote their abilities and use their talents and voices to benefit 
all persons with disabilities. Self-advocates often work together in groups to accomplish their goals with a united effort and promote awareness about the need for inclusion for all.
