Advocates in Action: Welcome to Our Website!

Advocates in Action Rhode Island is an independent, statewide, non-profit Self-Advocacy organization.

Phew! That's a lot of words! Bottom line: we are directed by and for people who have a developmental disability to empower others who also have DD so that they can speak up for themselves and others. Remember, "nothing about us without us", because together we can make a difference!
