Speak Out tagline

Virginia needs strong advocates to speak out in their communities on issues of importance to them. The Alumni Development Program (ADP) is a program of the Virginia Board for People with Disabilities designed to facilitate grassroots advocacy. All Partners in Policymaking and Youth Leadership Academy (formerly Forum) graduates are eligible to participate in the ADP’s Training Alumni Association (TAA). The TAA currently has four regional Advocacy Chapters (Northern Virginia, Central Virginia, Southwest Virginia, and Tidewater). Chapter members use the skills they learned to further advocate for systems change throughout the Commonwealth.

Membership is open to all the Board’s program alumni. To learn more details and to join the Advocacy Chapter in your area, and then click the tab for your region below.
