UCP of Suffolk Self Advocacy Group

Anthony is the new president of the UCP of Suffolk Self Advocacy Group. The Self Advocacy Group unites individuals with disabilities who are seeking to enhance their input into government policies, perceptions and the services that affect them. The group addresses housing, legislation, employment and transportation issues and is affiliated with the NYS Self-Advocacy Association.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity for me,” Anthony said. Anthony, a UCP of Suffolk participant of seven years, serves on UCP of Suffolk’s Advisory Board and he is a volunteer with The American Red Cross Volunteer Support Group of UCP of Suffolk, the nation’s first group of individuals with a developmental disability who are trained Red Cross volunteers.

Anthony loves to make music and plans to address some of the issues that individuals with disabilities face in his songs.“I am a rapper,” he said. “I usually rap about God, but my goal is to rap about people with developmental disabilities like myself.”

He said that he hopes to make a difference while he is president.“I want to speak up for the advocacy group more,” he said. “My ultimate goal is to speak up for the younger population that has disabilities.”
