Board of Directors:
Speaking For Ourselves is a state-wide self advocacy group in the state of Colorado. It is made up of several local self-advocacy groups for each region of the state. Each chapter is run a little differently based on the wants and needs of the group.
Four times a year the local groups get together to catch up on what each group has been working on and to establish state-wide goals in which each chapter then decides which of the state-wide goals they would like to work on. So, in a nut shell that’s who we are.
