Self Advocates

Introduction

"Your life and mine shall be valued not by what we take... but by what we give." Those words, spoken by Easter Seals' founder Edgar Allen over 90 years ago, began a movement. Today, we're thankful to you for being a part of that movement. With over 50 million Americans living with disabilities, our work is far from complete. We encourage you to help us call attention to the experience of people with disabilities, and to raise awareness of and advocate for the services they need to live, learn, work and play in their communities.

In the spotlight

Grandma

Liz Dixie could be forgiven if she didn’t answer to her name anymore. At Easterseals Arc, consumers and staff all know her as “Grandma.” That nickname is a natural perk of her years of volunteering.
