Independence Amplified Maryland, a program of the Maryland Centers for Independent Living, is your opportunity to know what’s going on in the world of disability and take control of your future.
The Centers for Independent Living in Maryland collaborate on this weekly live stream, which can be watched live via Zoom or viewed later on YouTube. It features speakers on the current issues that most interest the disability community, families, and service providers.
We hear from disability leaders, public officials, and most importantly—you, our community, and listeners. The show educates the public about the capacities of people with disabilities through the message of I AM:
I AM independent. I AM safe. I AM prepared. I AM in charge.
