Association for self-advocacy was established on the 11th of Aug 2010 by persons with intellectual disabilities, who are also users of the organized housing “Association for promoting inclusion” in Osijek, which is the result of eight years work and participating on various project as a group for self- advocates in Osijek.
With organized meetings, self – advocates dealt flyers and in that way helped pass the idea of self – advocacy on the local population of the city of Osijek, they were often integrated in various city contents (city pools, city ZOO, concerts and other manifestations), participated in congress and conferences.
Establishing the associations started a more serious and organized fight against discrimination of persons with disabilities to witch unfortunately the mental context of society has built walls towards people with disabilities where their fundamental human rights have been denied for example the freedom to decide of one’s life and respecting their thoughts, attitude and feelings.
