Are you passionate about advocating for people with disabilities? Do you want to make tangible change for individuals with disabilities in your community or on the national stage? Becoming a disability advocate is a fantastic way to make that impact—but how do you get started?

What specific training is needed if you’re serious about joining this important cause as a professional advocate?

A college degree is not required

Even without a college degree, becoming an advocate for disabled individuals is attainable and can be incredibly rewarding. Taking the initiative to gain knowledge in specific areas of disability advocacy, such as learning laws that help protect the rights of the disabled, can go a long way.

Additionally, meeting with those knowledgeable about how to best reach out on behalf of the disabled or joining national advocacy organizations can provide helpful insights on moving forward in your advocacy efforts. With some hard work and dedication, anyone who wants to make life better for disabled individuals can learn more and determine their unique course of action toward making a positive impact.
