Jessica Humphrey is CLBC’s Self Advocate Advisor. Jessica’s job is to listen to and learn from people CLBC supports all across the province.
She meets with individuals and self advocate leaders across B.C. and finds ways for their voices and stories to influence the work of CLBC and the community at large. She looks for opportunities to partner with provincial and regional self advocacy organizations such as BC People First, the BC Self Advocacy Foundation, BC Self Advocate Net and other community-based advocacy organizations.
Jessica encourages individual expertise by ensuring self advocate representation in CLBC led initiatives, training, working groups, committees and boards, including the CLBC Editorial Board. She works with CLBC staff at all levels to support practice that is person-centred and promotes self determination and full citizenship.
