Self Advocacy Opportunities

The Utah Developmental Disabilities Council is looking for self-advocates that would be interested in being a part of their quarterly self-advocate spotlight.  These videos highlight self-advocates in Utah that are employed, who are volunteering, or someone that is just getting started on their advocacy journey.  If you are interested, email Eric Stoker, a former South Valley School student and Information Specialist for the Utah Developmental Disabilities Council, at estoker@utah.gov.  Because of social distancing, the interviews will be conducted using Google Meet and recorded.  To see a sample recording of what the spotlight will look like, please click here.
