The empowerment zone was created to help break down barriers of injustice for people with disabilities, to create new relationships throughout the community with everyone, and help people with and without disabilities come together and bridge the gap and begin building hope and community inclusion for all now! Acceptance not altering people with disabilities is what we are fighting for!!!

Survivors start becoming thrives! I had to fight my way back to society and reality which took many years. It felt like the entire world outside of my family was against my own existence. But you know what? There are well over 400 centers for independent living in the United States and its territories that are fighting for your right to live a life of dignity and prosperity. No matter what your disability!!!

No matter what hardships you may be facing or I have faced it’s time to be proud and feel in a bold that you’ve made it this far with a disability and now proudly go where no man or woman has ever gone before, which to me means a life of hope, prosperity and kindness and employment for all!

I am proud of who I am now despite my disabilities. I don’t want to be healed because everything that can be done has been done to help me recover so for people out there that don’t understand or for mothers and fathers who feel they have failed because their child didn’t work out the way they wanted. It’s time for us to take a stand up for our rights under the ADA. I mean it study the ADA so we actually understand the laws that can protect us!

We just want the rights to live our lives and work and live in the World just like everyone else so join in tonight in the discussion on the Disability Round Table on the Empowerment Zone.
