What SAFA Does
Since its inception, SAFA has been spreading the word about who SAFA is and building its membership by exhibiting at various disability and/or mental health conferences throughout the U.S. SAFA also holds conference calls/webinars with SAFA members about topics of importance to the group. SAFA created and participated in the first of its kind self-advocacy tracks at the annual Building State FASD conferences in March of 2011 and 2012.
