EmpowerCon: January 2022

EmpowerCon is a monthly series of events where people with disabilities, their families, and other supporters can learn and share everyday skills and resources to live more independent lives. But more than that, it’s a place to be who you are and to have fun. Join us for the entire series or pick and choose sessions that interest you. EmpowerCon on January 14, 2022 is a free, virtual event about Using Our Empowered Voices, as speaking up is an important part of Independent Living. We'll share strategies and approaches to advocating for ourselves and others. We’ll also celebrate the New Year and talk about our plans going forward as a diverse and inclusive disability community. Please note: We are using Eventee to run the event. So logging into Eventee is fabulous, but you must also register directly with us in order to participate in EmpowerCon. You can do that via our website here: https://empowertennessee.org/empowercon/
