The Riot! is about self-advocacy. We offer a newsletter, a blog where self-advocates can share opinions, an online art gallery, toolkits, games and services to help individuals become stronger self-advocates. The Riot! is housed at the Human Services Research Institute. We cover topics that are important to self-advocates. And we really don't like silly rules that just keep people down. Riot staff at HSRI partner with self-advocates from around the country to bring you The Riot! newsletter, plus a number of other great things like art, games, advocacy tools, and much more!
We are serious about self-advocacy issues, but we also want to make you laugh and feel good about life. Join us to celebrate the strengths of self-advocates. Help take on the barriers that stand in the way. Most of all, let's work together to help people live the life they want with the support they need.
