Independence Amplified Maryland | Maryland Legislative Session
February 22, 2021 @ 2:00 pm
Join us on the next I AM for a special session on grassroots legislative advocacy in Maryland. Now more than ever our voices need to be heard. You’ll not want to miss the unveiling of the Independent Living Partners Legislative Policy Platform. A joint effort of the Maryland Centers for Independent Living and the Maryland Statewide Independent Living Council. We will explain how to find information about proposed legislation that may impact the disability community, and how to participate in this year’s all virtual legislative session.
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 are collaborating on a new weekly live stream. The stream, which can be watched live via Zoom or viewed later on YouTube, will feature speakers on the current issues that most interest the disability community, families, and service providers.
We will hear from disability leaders, public officials, and most importantly—you, our community, and listeners. The show will educate 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.
