Project Objective
This project is developing a statewide advocacy network and recruiting parents of children with developmental disabilities, young self-advocates and siblings to advocate on community-based issues in health and human services, accessible transportation and housing, meaningful employment, and appropriate education for people with disabilities. These volunteers commit to make contact with their local representative and have on-going interactions with the legislator or staff. TxP2P provides training and support to the advocates.

State Plan Goal 6
Work with others to double the number of identified leadership development and advocacy training programs that are able to provide culturally appropriate training for people with developmental disabilities without ongoing grant funding from TCDD.
