People with intellectual disabilities 
are people like everybody else.

Self-advocacy means that people with intellectual disabilities speak up for themselves.

There are many self-advocates in Europe!

Inclusion Europe wants to support them.

We do this in many ways.

For example, we set up the European Platform of Self-Advocates.

It is called EPSA for short.

We organise a conference for self-advocates
every two years.

The conference is called “Hear our Voices”.

We also organise leadership trainings for self-advocates

every year.

We publish a newsletter in easy-to-read
with news for self-advocates.

It is called “Europe for Us”.

It is published in 7 languages.

We did a video that explains how we support self-advocacy.
