A group of people got together last fall with a shared interest to start a Self Advocacy group in Sooke.
Since then the group has been working on developing its Mission, Vision and Values statement.
The Mission: To actively encourage people to advocate for each other and have their voices heard; The Vision: to be valued; the Values: inclusiveness, confidentiality, equality; friendship, respect, no judgments, courteous, open, supportive, choices, good communication, honesty, fairness, to be valued as me, and to have fun.
Now the group is looking forward to growing and expanding.
On May 30, the self advocacy group hosts a potluck dinner at its next meeting. The potluck will run from 6 to 7 p.m. Following the meeting is a workshop about “Stranger Danger.”
This group is open to anyone with diverse abilities who is interested in learning more about self advocacy.
The meeting takes place at 6672 Wadams Way.
