Oregon Self-Advocacy Coalition

Your Life, Your Voice

The mission of the Oregon Self Advocacy Coalition (OSAC) is to engage communities in advocating for the rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. OSAC receives funding and staff support from the Oregon Council on Developmental Disabilities.

OSAC brings together self-advocates from across the state to have a unified voice about issues that affect their lives. The organization also supports individual members and local self-advocacy groups to take action in their own lives and communities.
