Eight self-advocates on Iowa’s HSRN leadership team worked with partners from the Iowa University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD) and the Arc of Iowa on the HSRN project. Together, we lead a group effort to understand the needs of self-advocates in Iowa and identify how to build a stronger movement together. Other important contributors in this work include the Iowa DD Council, Disability Rights Iowa, Ask Resource Center, and family members and staff of Iowans with disabilities. We continue to implement the state plan we developed through HSRN, and seek input from voices of self-advocates throughout the state.
