Wyoming State Advocates in Leadership

Our Vision

To develop leaders with developmental disabilities that can learn the skills to develop advocacy groups and teach others with developmental disabilities to stand up for the rights, choices, and address legislative ideas in a productive way,

     All people with developmental disabilities are valued in their community, have control over their own lives, and have the necessary resources to live a life of quality.

That vision is captured in three words:
· Dignity
· Equality
· Empowerment
