People with disabilities are worried about the future of their services and supports. Cuts to public supports, like Medicaid, will mean major setbacks for people with disabilities and their families. That includes loss of support, independence, and jobs.

This cannot happen on our watch!

The Riot has always been a resource for self-advocates to express themselves and tell it like it is. For this issue a group of self-advocate leaders from across the United States came together to set the line on things that are most important to people with disabilities. We are paying attention to what is going on across the country. This Riot issue spells out our bottom lines on things that are important to everyone.

More About The Riot!

The Riot! is for self-advocates – people with disabilities who speak up for themselves.

We hope that other people, like family members, staff and policy makers will enjoy it too. But these pages are written mostly for our main audience, self-advocates!

Here’s what we promise to do. We will:

  • Make you smile. We’re not happy unless we make you laugh at least once.Got Love Probelms? Contact Jack and Jill
  • Give you good information.
  • Write articles that promote self-advocates living in the community and taking charge of their own lives.
  • Help make self-advocacy strong. Self-advocates are speaking up all over the country. We’ll give you opportunities to make your voice heard.
