Independence Amplified Maryland | Disability EmpowHer Network
March 1, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Disability EmpowHer Network was founded by Stephanie Woodward and Leah Smith, two proud disabled women who are driven by their commitment to the Disability Community and bringing more girls and women with disabilities to the forefront. Disability EmpowHer Network values disabled women and believes in the potential of girls and young women with disabilities to succeed. Through multi-stage skill-building, empowerment, and mentoring programs, Disability EmpowHer Network empowers girls with disabilities to live to their full potential and have the confidence to lead.
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.
