The Ripple

The Ripple is a bi-monthly newsletter written by self-advocates. The newsletter promotes self-advocacy, inclusion and the community. Articles can be written on:

The newsletter also gives self-advocates an opportunity to showcase their skills, talents and abilities! We are proud to share artwork, photos, poetry or stories! We know every single self-advocate has something to offer; we want to nurture that!

History of The Ripple

In 2006, self-advocates supported by Peak Vocational and Support Services express a desire to volunteer their time to help SAIPA. Several advocates come in on Wednesday and Thursday mornings to put together the SRSAN newsletter which is later named “The Ripple”.

Throughout the years, we have had several dedicated volunteers write articles on things that matter to them, and to the community!

Join us!

Do you want to join the newsletter team? Advocates meet Thursdays from 9:30-11 a.m. at the SAIPA office (200 410 Stafford Drive). Advocates also have the option to “satellite write” if they have an article they would like to share and cannot attend regular meetings. These can be submitted in person at the SAIPA office.

The Ripple also accepts story ideas, comments, questions and tips! If you have an idea for the newsletter crew, contact us in person, or by phone at 403-320-1515.
