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.
* September 14, 2020 - National Disability Legislation Alert!
Hear from national disability organizations about their current legislative initiatives and how you can make your voices heard. Representatives from the National Council On Independent Living, The National Federation of the Blind, National ADAPT, and other disability organizations discuss current actions they are taking and how you can be a part of the solution.
This will be a fast and action-packed with information and a call to action if the voices of people with disabilities are going to be heard in these critical times.
You are welcome to circulate this announcement nationally through social media. Although we have about twenty-five minutes for questions, you may submit them in advance as well to firstname.lastname@example.org
