The National Council of Self Advocates (NCSA)

The National Council of Self-Advocates is the voice of self-advocates across all of The Arc’s work.
We look to:

  • Engage self-advocates from diverse communities
  • Help chapters support self-advocates
  • Create opportunities for self-advocates to network and learn from one another
  • Raise awareness about self-advocacy in NCSA member communities

We need you! Help us by:

  • Sharing your expertise and furthering your knowledge on monthly calls on important self-advocacy topics
  • Informing the work of The Arc’s national office and chapters by sharing how the programs being developed can support self-advocates
