Enjoy this short video of pictures from the 2012 Self Advocacy Conference!
People In Action is a self-advocacy group of people who support each other to speak up and learn to discuss issues that are important to them. We work cooperatively with the Clermont County Board of DD and our communities to share ideas, promote advocacy education, and improve the quality of services in our county.
People In Action thinks it is important to:
- take pride in each other’s abilities
- be leaders in their communities
- assist to educate the public about disability awareness issues
- work as a team to find common solutions to common problems
- support each other to reach personal goals and dreams
Anyone who is eligible to receive services from Clermont DD can join the meetings.
The meetings teach people how to speak up for themselves and are a way for others to meet and talk with people about issues. We are also involved in attending trainings and advocacy conferences. You are not required to serve on any committees—this is totally an individual’s decision.
Open meetings are heldon thefourth Friday of each month from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the Grissom Center at 4231 Grissom Drive, Batavia, Ohio 45103. We ask that you arrange for your own transportation or partner with others for transportation needs.
You may bring a friend or a person who can help you as needed during the meetings. However, we ask that person to only be an advisor-they do not tell us what they want; as much as possible you speak up for what you want. If you need help, please contact us a the number/emails listed above.
