It's My Life



Welcome to the Alliance website! The Alliance is a statewide team of self-advocacy groups in Illinois. We work together to make life better in our communities and to work to make services better in our state.

We want groups from around the state to speak together with one loud voice. We can do more when we all work together!

Our Vision

Our vision is for self-advocates to work together to get the support we need and to live the life we want in the community.

Our Mission

Our mission is to speak up for ourselves and each other while working together to make changes in our communities and in Illinois.

The Alliance’s

Operation: Community Access Petition

The Alliance is statewide collaboration between self-advocates, member groups, agencies, and organizations. We the self-advocates, have gathered together to work on a campaign called “Operation: Community Access”; we want flexible day services for people with disabilities so we can make more choices about what we want to do during the day.

We believe it is important for people with disabilities to

• be a part of our communities;
• use our voices to self-advocate; and
• to advocate for the rights of others.

I support self-advocates in having flexibility in making more choices in activities during the day.

And here is a little handout to pass along to your allies.  It will help you explain the campaign.

Would you like to help out with the campaign?  Anyone can, even if they only have a few minutes.  Take a look at our Got Time Handout to get ideas on how to advocate in a time crunch!


The Alliance is proud to be funded through September 30, 2017 by the Illinois Council on Developmental Disabilities, (or ICDD).  Thank you!
