Oklahoma Self-Advocacy Network (OKSAN)

The Oklahoma Self-Advocacy Network is a collaborative effort to strengthen the self-advocacy movement in Oklahoma and to increase the inclusion and independence of people with disabilities. Together, the Center for Learning and Leadership, the Developmental Disabilities Council of Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Disability Law Center, and Oklahoma People First have committed staff, funding and other supports to ensure the success of this project. With funding from a DDCO grant, CLL contracts with Oklahoma People First to provide speaker fees and travel expenses to self-advocate trainers. Assistance is also provided to support staff and OPF advisors to assist in meeting facilitation, trainings, and advocacy efforts. CLL also provides partial funding for OKSAN's project coordinator, Rose-Ann Percival.
