If you are not familiar with SAC6 and this is your first contact with us: We would be pleased to hear from you! Please let us know what your needs and questions are, we will be more than happy to help.

The SAC6 was created in May, 1992 by consumers at an area self-advocacy meeting and serves Area 6 -- Amador, Calaveras, San Joaquin, Stanislaus, and Tuolumne counties. 

Two representatives from each self advocacy chapter in Area 6 can serve on the SAC6 board.  Area 6 has representatives on the Valley Mountain Regional Center Board, The Area 6 Developmental Disabilities Board, and the Statewide Self-Advocacy Network.  The representative of the Department of Developmental Services Consumer Advisory Committee is also a member of the SAC6.  Only members of self-advocacy groups are members of SAC6 board.

The mission of the SAC6 is:

  • Learn about issues that impact the lives of people with developmental disabilities.
  • Tell the self-advocacy groups about important issues.
  • Find out what the self-advocacy groups think about important issues.
  • Find out what self advocactes want in their lives.
  • Talk to people who make decisions for people with developmental disabilities, including VMRC and Area Board, and tell them what advocates want.
  • Help the self-advocacy  movement grow!
