People First 1 of North Carolina is a network of local self-advocacy organizations for people with intellectual/developmental disabilities.
We are working:
* to bring together local self-advocacy groups across the state,
* to share knowledge
* to become stronger self-advocates
We need YOU to join us, by linking your local group with the statewide network.
Self-advocates are people with disabilities who speak up for themselves and others.
Self-advocates know their rights and make their voices heard in their communities.
People First 1 of North Carolina is now a 501c3 non-profit organization!
