What is SACK?
The Self Advocate Coalition of Kansas (SACK) is a statewide advocacy group made up of adults with developmental disabilities, the majority of whom receive services through the Kansas Developmental Disabilities Service System. SACK encourages and teaches people to speak up for themselves and to obtain the highest possible level of independence.
To promote empowerment and independence for adults with developmental disabilities.
All Kansans with developmental disabilities will have the opportunity to express opinions and make choices in order to create a life where they are treated with the same dignity and respect as persons without developmental disabilities.
SACK supports the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
