On the Independence Amplified Maryland broadcast on Monday, February 22, the Public Policy Platform of the Maryland Independent Living Network was shared and discussed.
This special session focused on grassroots legislative advocacy in Maryland. Now more than ever our voices need to be heard. The Independent Living Partners Legislative Policy Platform is a joint effort of the Maryland Centers for Independent Living and the Maryland Statewide Independent Living Council. We explained how to find information about proposed legislation that may impact the disability community, and how to participate in this year’s all-virtual legislative session.
Here are the documents that were shared in the discussion.
