Welcome to the Advocacy Toolkit!  This online toolkit was prepared by the Disability Advocacy Support Hub (DASH), a project of the Disability Rights Pennsylvania through a grant from the Pennsylvania Developmental Disabilities Council.  The links take you to publications that will help your organization develop advocacy strategies and action.  We encourage you to become actively involved in making a difference for people with disabilities in your community and on the state and national levels. Click here for a printable PDF version of the toolkit.
