Details of statement:
In May 2019, SALN began our journey to create the first Self Advocate Leadership Network in British Columbia. SALN was co-founded by Michael McLellan and Alexander Magnussen with the support of Jillian Glennie from UNITI.
Since 2019, SALN has been involved in many Provincial and Federal projects and initiatives to address the rights of people with disabilities.
