People First NZ has the chance to join people from around the world!

 

In August 2016 IASSIDD will hold their 15th World Congress and this time it will be in the southern hemisphere! This is a rare opportunity that People First NZ wants to make the most of. The slogan of the international self-advocacy movement is “Nothing about us, without us”. It is important for us to be there.

PeopleFirst_011At the World Congress there will be people with learning disability and others from around the world. Members of the People First National Committee are keen to find out what other self-advocacy organisations are doing from around the world and how our National Committee can connect with people with learning disability who have similar roles in other countries.

 

The National Committee are also looking forward to meeting other people who are doing research or running services.

People First NZ is seeking sponsorship or a contribution to get all 6 National Committee members along.
