People First members are self-advocates. Self-advocates help each other and speak up for themselves. They meet new friends and have fun. They sponsor educational as well as recreational activities. Also, People First members keep in contact with state and congressional representatives, local agencies, and community leaders to learn more about advocacy issues and learn how they can contribute to the community.
People First members are just that—They are PEOPLE first. Their disabilities come second!
Most chapters have a business meeting once a month. They also participate in regional and national legislative hearings and conferences. RCRC’s adult clients are welcome to visit the meetings to see if they are interested in becoming members.
