Deaf people deserve a better life. So do other people with disabilities. Deaf and disabled people can learn how to advocate for better lives. This training manual can help deaf and disabled people learn to advocate for themselves. For example, it explains the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. It also explains what human rights are. And it explains how people can take action to help themselves and others. Meanwhile, the handbook has exercises to help people learn to advocate for change.
The Harvard Project on Disability (HPOD) published this book in 2008. This PDF file is partly accessible for people using screen reading software.
Also explore other resources for teaching self-advocacy skills. These can help more deaf people learn to advocate for better lives.
