Freedom For All - The Empowerment Zone - Les Paul Morgan
It emphasizes the empowerment of individuals with disabilities to take control of their lives to the maximum extent possible. The person isn’t a patient, but a consumer that controls the services that are consumed. When I created the empowerment zone, and disability round table shows I had some of the things I was talking about such as an International Network which is a much larger venue to share the independent living movements mission statements to people all around the world so that true inclusion for all would no longer just be a dream but instead a reality!!!
That’s the hope and reason I wanted to create this series of shows to expand everyone’s knowledge including my own for the greater good of society, much as great leaders Martin Luther King, Ed Roberts, Justin Dart, Judy Heumann, and oh so many more unsung heroes of the independent living movement have done!
Tonight I sit here two days from the edge of eternity, which means on December 18 I will have survived 30 years of severe brain trauma and yet as I sit here I want you to all prepared to join with me in a celebration of life, confidence, empowerment, strength, struggle, mobilization, and getting prepared for 2015 – 2014 is whining to a close, yet there is still a chance for great change. Now!!!

I’m a certified peer support specialist for people with disabilties and a multiple brain injury and aneurysm survivor as well as a survivor of several related operations and procedures. Together, I hope we can bridge the gap to inclusion for everyone with all types of disabilities and that you will be willing to call in and share your stories and ideas on The Empowerment Zone with Les Paul!
I work for a Center for Independent Living which are community-based, cross-disability, non-profit organizations that is designed and operated by people with disabilities. CILs are unique in that they operate according to a strict philosophy of consumer control, wherein people with all types of disabilities directly govern and staff the organization. Centers for Independent Living Provide:
Information and Referral
Individual and Systems Advocacy
Independent Living Skills Training
The Empowerment Zone is a place for all people with any type of disability to come and learn and find common ground and solutions to help empower people with disabilities to find their inner strengths.
This is a positive show based on the IL philosophy which is independent living for all people wishing to better their lives by learning to take charge of their destiny and living their dreams through the independent living movement. Two years ago I came up with the concept for the Empowerment Zone after also hosting on the brain injury radio network show Dream Catchers for over three years now as well.
Not only is the independent living movement very cool, but it’s a way of thinking differently with a disability with bold ideas and a brave new future using the core services of Iindependent Living. If you would like to call in and talk dial 424-243-9540 and press one if you’d like to speak because that shows me your hand is up!
We all are infinite Souls, having a Human experience. But IF we can embody our Soul, we can have uncommon wisdom, power and grace. Love is the source of all Authentic Power. To give ourselves permission to show up as Powerful Souls in this human paradigm, is to be part of the change of humanity itself.
Personal Sovereignty decides how powerful we can show up in our life. It decides what we feel entitled to. What we have "permission" to choose. To understand the power behind our own sense of Personal Sovereignty, we need to be able to embody what that actually means. Join us as we discuss the power behind You. Who you are and what you are capable of becoming.
