MD Youth Leadership Forum Legislative Day
The Maryland Youth Leadership Forum gives high school students the opportunity to learn leadership skills, become knowledgeable about disability culture and history, and explore options for the future. While not held in person this year, the show (and the learning!) must go on.
MD-YLF is holding their sessions via Zoom. MDOD Secretary Carol Beatty gave an overview of MDOD and its programs. Several legislators joined in the Zoom to provide insight on how bills become law, how to advocate, and how to make change happen, despite any setbacks. Deputy Secretary Christian Miele joined the afternoon panel answering questions and providing more insights on leadership.
