After generations of being invisible we have joined together, with our OWN voice to inspire and educate each other “peer to peer” throughout the state, to start People First chapters.
We train, inform, and support all people with developmental disabilities to help our peers learn to:

  • Speak up for themselves,

  • Know our rights and responsibilities,

  • Make decisions and solve problems,

And, stand together in unity, to take our rightful place in the world.
