FASD Hope is a podcast about Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), through the lens of parent advocates with over twenty years of lived experience.
Episode 142 is titled "Amazing Advocacy" and highlights Yvonne Williams and her incredible advocacy contributions to the FASD Community. Yvonne started her FASD journey when she adopted her daughter in 2007. Over the years, she became not only a champion for her daughter, but also for the FASD Community. In 2014, she started the blog "Our Sacred Breath" to share her involvement with the Red Shoes Rock Campaign and the creation of 99 Days to FASDay information series, which has been running annually since 2017. In addition, she served on the Advisory Committee for the Ontario (Canada) Provincial FASD Website and she has moderated several online FASD Groups over the years. In 2018, Yvonne and her daughter started sharing their stories in caregiver groups, workshops, conferences and launched a Redbubble Shop to create and sell FASD swag and merchandise. Currently, she remains active in low-key advocacy activities and she works part-time for Jeff Noble, as his external specialist.
