MISIBS exists to provide adult siblings of individuals with disabilities with the information, resources and support to advocate with and/or for their brothers and sisters and to promote leadership roles of siblings within the disability community.
Advocacy begins by being well informed about a situation that requires change. It also requires identifying people in power to effect change. Effective advocates are passionate in their belief that advocacy can be accomplished indirectly and directly on many levels with brothers and sisters. Each local sibling group can offer assistance with advocacy through local Arc chapters and can connect people to other siblings locally who may be able to offer advice and assistance when necessary.
