Turning Insight and Vision into Awareness
This webinar, in honor of Blindness Awareness Month, will include the sharing of two amazing stories from self-advocates, These stories will include two people with different experiences and perspectives, but who share commonality in that they are both individuals who just so happen to live with blindness and low vision. Please join Billy Pickens, ECAC's Youth Outreach Coordinator and Mayia Warren as they share their journeys of perseverance, courage and success. They will give insight on what they have learned through their lived experiences, present successes, future goals and what they would like others to learn from their experiences as well.
Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Summarize the history of Blindness Awareness Month
- Recognize the importance and benefits of self-advocacy
- Demonstrate a better understanding of blindness and visual impairments
