SASI Initiative Empowering People with Developmental Disabilities to Lead Community Development Projects

Summary: 
People with developmental disabilities across BC have been granted funding to lead groundbreaking community development projects in their communities.

Over 25 community projects - ranging from sign language café clubs to community festivals to radio shows and website networking - have received funding. Check out the projects here.

The Self Advocates Seeding Innovation (SASI) initiative is rooted in the principles of self determination and independence, as people with developmental disabilities lead the projects. It was developed to bring people together, give back to community and strengthen the self advocacy movement in B.C.

SASI is coordinated by the BC Association for Community Living and sponsored by Community Living BC.
