Empowering Choice: from Pizza to Politics

"Empowering Choice: from Pizza to Politics" report discusses DRW’s observations of everyday ways in which Supported Living providers can either facilitate or hamper people’s abilities to wholly engage in community life as equal society members, as articulated in the Residential Guidelines. In sum, DRW identified examples in three areas of decision-making and community engagement where people with disabilities participating in Supported Living programs can be supported to increase their political enfranchisement:

1. Provide Access to Information and Communication
2. Support and Training to Exercise Autonomy and Self-Determination
3. Encourage and Support Opportunities for Community and Civic Engagement
