Independence Amplified Maryland | Community Planning
December 13, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Community planning is a portion of the government involving the creation of strategies to achieve social, economic, and environmental sustainability. Planners have the power to make changes at the neighborhood level so knowing your local planners and what they do is important if you want to have a voice in those changes. Community planning has a history of exclusion when it comes to disability and that needs to change. This presentation will discuss how to include those with disabilities in neighborhood planning and the ways in which community members can get involved in the planning process.
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. The stream, which can be watched live via Zoom or viewed later on YouTube, features speakers on the current issues that most interest the disability community, families, and service providers.
You’ll 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.
