Advocacy by and for People with ABI (Acquired Brain Injury)
Public Policy of the Brain Injury Network Policy dated 12-28-09
Survivor Advocacy: There is survivor self-advocacy and there is survivor collective advocacy within the brain injury community. Some survivors are advocating individually. Some have organized and are collaborating in their advocacy work. For example, survivors affiliated with the Brain Injury Network, are advocating collectively. We work in concert on issues we have determined are important to the well being of our community as a whole. We at BIN sometimes call ourselves SABI’s. SABI stands for “Survivor of Acquired Brain Injury” and it also means “Survivor Advocate for (People with) Brain Injury”.
