Let It Be Heard!
Disability Rights Self Advocacy and Advocacy for Others
~ ~ A letter is the most important tool there is in Advocacy. Representatives count a letter as equal to 1000 constituents, a phone call only 100 and email gets no respect. Letters are documentation and copies of any advocacy letter should sent to organizations and/or other representatives. Always be respectful and address recipient properly. Treat all representatives as a potential ally and you may make them one, treat them as an enemy and you make an enemy of your cause as well and as an Advocate for Disability, I won't appreciate that. If you would like, you may email me a copy of your Advocacy letter, I will always read them but rarely respond. If I write to advocate on the same subject I will email you a copy of my letter.
If you are a Disability Advocate there is NO reason not to have a Web Page
