Empowering Partners is a pilot initiative of The Arc Maryland and People on the Go of Maryland, in partnership with chapters of The Arc in Maryland. The goal of the project is to raise awareness about the value of self-advocacy and to support self-advocacy groups to reconvene and/or strengthen throughout the state.
Upcoming calls about the initiative are being held next week to share information, gather feedback from stakeholders, and assess interest!
Initially, the calls will be held for those residing in 4 Maryland Counties: Washington, Prince George's, Montgomery, and Frederick. As we proceed, additional information calls will be added for people who reside in other Maryland counties/jurisdictions.
Each call will be hosted by a self-advocate facilitator along with Mat Rice, Director of Public Policy for The Arc Maryland. Please see the flyer and our website for specific times and dates of the information calls, and more information about the initiative.
