STAND Together Self-Advocate Group
STAND Together is a structured support group where adult self-advocates can share information about items of concern, upcoming activities, and legislation which may impact their rights or services. Members learn about their rights and responsibilities and become educated and empowered.
STAND members are occasionally called upon to share success stories with community groups, or even to testify before the Maryland legislature. They also offer positive encouragement to each other, engage in their community through volunteer service, and participate in special events which support inclusion and independence for people with disabilities.
STAND holds formal meetings on the last Thursday evening of each month at Saint Mark Presbyterian Church, 10701 Old Georgetown Road, North Bethesda, 20852.
