Self Advocate Advisory Council Members at a monthly meeting

The Self-Advocate Advisory Council (SAAC) is made up of 16 adults who play an active leadership role in our organization by:

  • Advising the MDSC on issues that are important to adults with Down syndrome
  • Making sure self-advocates are present and active leaders in MDSC events and programs
  • Developing personal leadership and self-advocacy skills
  • Planning and participating in events for adults (including SAAC quarterly socials and workshops) and participating in other MDSC programs like the MDSC Legislative Advocacy Task Force 
  • Working as a team

We hope you'll join us at a meeting or event soon!
