This week’s Resource Spotlight is SLN’s Sibling Advocacy Toolkit.
This toolkit is designed to demonstrate how advocacy consists of multiple layers, steps and levels. “Advocacy layers” can work together for the ultimate goal of better lives for people with disabilities and their families.
This toolkit shows the unique roles that siblings play within advocacy. From connecting with other siblings to visiting with legislators, siblings offer perspectives that have not always been included in traditional forms or methods of advocacy.
The Advocacy Toolkit also includes:
- Sample Letter to Policymakers
- Advocacy Letter-writing Tips
- What Will You Say?
- Sibling Talking Points
