Independence Amplified Maryland!
Join us for our live stream event to inform the disability community on Mondays at 2 p.m.
What is I AM?
The Centers for Independent Living in Maryland are collaborating on a 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. Topics may include food resources, transportation concerns, and how the rules of re-opening the economy affect the community.
Independence Amplified Maryland is your opportunity to know what’s going on in the world of disability and take control of your future.
