Envision Illinois: Uniting Disability and Domestic Violence Services to Achieve Safety, Justice and Healing

November 30, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Domestic Violence takes place within relationships, yet it often goes unrecognized and hidden from view. Envision Illinois is a collaborative
project that brings together self-advocates, domestic violence and disability organizations across Illinois to transform services for people with disabilities and Deaf people who have experienced domestic violence in ways that support safety, justice and healing. Join us and learn how you can be part of the solution!

Recruitment and Training Program at the Illinois Network of Centers for
Independent Living. Megan is a self-advocate who has worked with people
with disabilities for over 12 years. She is constantly on the lookout for new
opportunities to help bring the disability community together, and believes
that no opportunity to empower people is too small.

Linda Sandman is a licensed clinical social worker in Illinois and a Co-
Director with Blue Tower Solutions. Linda brings over 35 years’ experience
working with people with disabilities and is a member of the Envision Illinois
statewide team. In addition, Linda is bilingual (Spanish/English) and
