5th Annual Empowerment Forum for People with Disabilities
Thursday August 17, 2017
Hilton Garden Inn Auburn Riverwatch 14 Great Falls Plaza Auburn, Maine, 04210
Each year, the Empowerment Forum provides an opportunity for people with disabilities to learn about self-advocacy opportunities and skills through speakers, workshops on specific issues, and panel discussions.
The Maine Coalition Against Sexual Assault (MECASA) is conducting their second bi-annual Underserved Survivors of Sexual Violence Needs Assessment. This survey is designed to get feedback on sexual assault services in Maine and for them to learn more about how to best support survivors.
The survey takes about 5 minutes and will significantly help them improve services. Hearing the voices of survivors and community partners is very important to them and how they do their work so they are looking for your feedback.
Please Note: Their will be NO Legislative Subcommittee Meeting in July 2017! The next scheduled meeting will be on August 9, 2017 at the Maine Statehouse; tour followed by a brief meeting. Meeting location: TBD.
