What is a Self Advocate?
As a Self Advocate, you speak and act for yourself. It means deciding what is best for you and taking charge of getting what you want. It means standing up for your rights as a person. SARAH Tuxis believes that all of the people we provide services to can benefit from learning and using self advocacy skills.
SARAH Tuxis is proud to have Self Advocate Chris Blake as a voting member on the Board of Directors. Chris also chairs a Self Advocacy Group that meets one time per month. He also serves on DDS and other statewide committees to influence change that will result in the enhanced empowerment of people with cognitive disabilities.
