Advocacy & Education

You should have a voice. You should have the opportunity to express your thoughts, concerns and feelings on issues that matter to you. You should also have the opportunity to meet others who are like minded and rally in that camaraderie. Our advocacy groups provide opportunities to do just that. These groups meet regularly and always welcome new members.

Renegades

Renegades is an advocacy group for adults who are affected by an intellectual or developmental disability, and is a local branch of the Self-Advocacy Association of New York State (SANYS). The Renegades meet on the third Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. For more information, please contact: (845) 331-4300 ext. 41282
