Elevating the voices of people with disabilities

Through community building, networking, and cross-collaboration, Access Living’s Power to the People (PTP) advocacy group harnesses many different voices and areas of expertise to advocate for the changes that people with disabilities want and need. Together with those who participate in DRACH, AYLP, Cambiando Vidas, Independent Voices, and TFAS, PTP members train in organizing and social justice and use their collective power and voices to create change.

Get Involved with PTP

  • Power to the People meets at Access Living from 2 to 4 p.m. on the third Friday of every month
  • Participation is open to all. Members of PTP are people with disabilities and their allies.
