Volume 37 | Issue 2-3 | Spring 2011 | “Self-advocacy and Social Justice: Ensuring opportunities to make choices and control services and supports."
In this issue of TASH Connections, we have collected articles that approach social justice or self-advocacy from different perspectives. Don’t think of the two as separate, but instead as a necessary combination to further the full participation of all people in all of life’s activities. Choosing services and supports and controlling how those services and supports are directed is the only real choice. Self-advocacy and social justice must be fully understood and then used as a means to direct action.
