I am glad to be a part of SUFU. It helps everyone with a disability. I like that we include others with a disability and we invite others to join us so we can be our best. At SUFU we can help each other in our chapter and at the state level. We get to meet others from all over the state when we go to SUFU events. I like that we are all working together to make our lives the best they can be. I think it is important that we all spread the word about SUFU to all our friends. We need to talk to them about SUFU to advance SUFU and make it even better. The more people take action and get  involved, the better.



Speaking Up For Us would like to have more guest bloggers.  If you are self advocate and would like to share a blog post with us please email Laurie Coldwell at
