California Statewide Self-Advocacy Chats
The California State Council on Developmental Disabilities (SCDD) invites you to join the next monthly California Statewide Self-Advocacy Chat. There is a total of 12 California Statewide Self-Advocacy Chats planned for 2021, and SCDD encourages those who are interested to join in the conversation!
What/Why: The “California Statewide Self-Advocacy Chats” provide self-advocates throughout California the chance to talk about topics that matter to them. After each meeting, resources and information related to the topics discussed will be shared with participants in a follow-up email. Information and resources shared are intended to help advocates learn about issues and advocate for change in their communities.
When: The third Wednesday of each month.
The April 2021 California Statewide Self-Advocacy Chat will be held on Wednesday, April 21st @ 11:00 A.M.
This month’s topic: Coping with Change
Here are some questions to think about for this month’s Chat:
1. How do you handle change or uncertainty?
2. Do you notice any mental/emotional or physical responses?
3. Are there any activities, places or people that help you to cope with change?
4. If you could keep one thing that has changed in the last year, what would it be?
This month’s Chat will be facilitated by Riana Hardin, Self-Advocacy Coordinator for the California State Council on Developmental Disabilities.
