Mission of Green Mountain Self-Advocates
The purpose of Green Mountain Self-Advocates (GMSA) is for people with developmental disabilities to educate peers to take control over their own lives, make decisions, solve problems, and speak for themselves.
Another purpose of Green Mountain Self-Advocates is to educate and make the public aware of the strengths, rights, wants and needs of people with developmental disabilities. We help self-advocates by letting them say what they believe.
We are building a movement for self-advocacy in Vermont through public education, peer mentoring and support, advocacy, and direct action.
