NO ONE IS BORN A LEADER!

By Jen Grushdale

No one, not Martin Luther King, Jr. or Justin Dart. Not Judy Heumann or Kelly Buckland. All of them learned how to be a leader. Yes, but how did they start?

Simply put, by learning to advocate for themselves. And that’s what our S.A.L.T. Program is all about. S.A.L.T. stands for Self-Advocacy Leadership Training and is LINC’s leadership training workshop series. We’ve been doing this for a couple of years now and
our graduates are moving on to bigger and better things! From having their voices heard at the statehouse through Operation Advocacy, to finding jobs and more – they make a difference! “Definitely helped me stand up for myself.” – Graduate
Look for our next session in Spring of 2024.

And what about Operation Advocacy? Glad you asked!

Operation Advocacy (OA) is LINC’s annual Legislative day of advocacy in conjunction with the Consortium of Idahoans with Disabilities Fred Riggers Disability Awareness Day. OA involves a day of story-telling training, followed by a day of meetings with Idaho State Legislators on issues important to Idahoans with disabilities across the lifespan.

We will be hosting the 2nd Annual Operation Advocacy in January! Mark your calendars now for Jan. 31st to Feb. 1st, 2024 and meet us downtown to help us take over the Capitol again this year! Let’s build on last year’s success by connecting with our legislators about the issues important to us. Don’t let others speak for you, find your voice and lead with it!

Wednesday, January 31 – Day of Training
Thursday, February 1 – Day of Action
