Who We Are
In 2016, Self Advocates Becoming Empowered (SABE), the oldest national self-advocacy organization in the country, was awarded a grant from the Administration for Community Living to establish the first-ever national Self Advocacy Resource and Technical Assistance Center (SARTAC).
The resource center is funded as a Project of National Significance by the Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities under the Administration on Disabilities.
Our Advisory Committee includes 13 self-advocates from all over the USA who work as a team to oversee the SARTAC project.
Our Project Partners
- Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN)
- Green Mountain Self-Advocates (GMSA)
- National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities (NACDD)
- Sibling Leadership Network (SLN)
- Southwest Institute for Families and Children (SWI)
- University of Missouri Kansas City Institute for Human Development (UMKC)
The mission of SARTAC is to strengthen the self-advocacy movement by supporting self advocacy organizations to grow in diversity and leadership.
