People First of Jefferson County & Speaking for Ourselves - Colorado

People First of Jefferson County is a group of self-advocates and Arc advisors that meets the first Wednesday of every month. This group is a local chapter of Speaking For Ourselves – Colorado, which holds quarterly meetings around the state and a biannual conference. Members of both groups focus on making positive changes in our community and beyond, becoming stronger self-advocates, and supporting each other. We share fellowship within our chapter and with other chapters around the state. No matter how serious the topic, we always incorporate fun things like Halloween dance parties, yoga, and even dancing with brooms!

People First meetings are held the first Wednesday of every month from 6:00 - 7:30 PM at The Arc's office in Lakewood. Want to learn more or join our group? Call (303) 232-1338 and ask for Valerie, or send an email to valerie@arcjc.org
