National Council of Self-Advocates

The National Council of Self-Advocates (NCSA) is a leading organization for self-advocates involved with The Arc of the United States and its chapters across the nation.  NCSA influences The Arc’s advocacy efforts, informs The Arc’s programming and ensure people with intellectual and developmental disabilities have the same civil and human rights that every citizen enjoys.

Members of the NCSA:

  • Lead and participate in monthly online meetings 
  • Plan and host the annual self-advocacy symposium at The Arc’s National Convention
  • Engage with chapters to effectively support self-advocates
  • Raise awareness about self-advocacy in communities around the country

You can help the NCSA by:

  • Sharing your expertise and furthering your knowledge on important self-advocacy topics
  • Informing the work of The Arc’s national office and chapters by sharing how the programs being developed can support self-advocates
