Advocates in Action Rhode Island is an independent non-profit Statewide Self-Advocacy organization. Our mission is to empower people who have a developmental disability to advocate for themselves and others, to support and strengthen the Self‐Advocacy movement and to raise awareness about disability issues in the community. We strive to help people become educated about their options, aware of available resources, able to make informed decisions, in control of their own lives, and involved within the community.

You can also find out more by visiting www.olmstead-ddnews.org. This site was created by Gina Macris. Gina is a a retired Providence Journal, and also the mother or a son who receives DD services. We have found the site to be an amazing resource. We hope you do, too!
At Advocates in Action RI, we believe that everyone who wants to work should be able to pursue that goal. Having a disability SHOULD NOT stop you, and the DD Service system SHOULD help you! We are committed to sharing this message with individuals, families and the RI community as we work together to promote employment for people who have an intellectual/developmental disability. Let's get to work!
