The Erie County Board of Developmental Disabilities has an active group of self advocates that help teach individuals with disabilities how to speak up for themselves and teach people without disabilities about the importance of inclusion.

 The Self-Advocates of Erie County are involved at both the local and state levels. They attend monthly meetings, training and conferences to network, strengthen their skills and be the voices for Erie County.


Self-Advocates Meetings are held on:
1st Monday of each month at 4:00 PM
Erie County Board of DD Conference Room
