Our videos are created to share the  wisdom of people engaged in change efforts: people with disabilities discovering what it means to be in charge of their own lives, living as citizens in their communities; service providers and funding systems discovering what it means to support people who "self-direct" their services and supports; and leaders in thought and practice who we continue to learn from.
