The Empowered Fe Fes is a young women’s advocacy and peer support group that is committed to creating change in the lives of young women with disabilities. Members will get the chance to meet other young women with disabilities and build campaigns around disability and women’s rights. Our meetings also allow time for the group to have discussions about disability pride, gender inequality, self-care, dating and relationships, self-advocacy and other topics.
The Empowered Fe Fes meet the first and third Friday of every month from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Access Living in Chicago. We invite you to visit our meetings to learn more or join the group. For questions, concerns, or to request information please contact us.
Who can join:
Our group is open to women and girls with disabilities ages 16 to 2 living in the Chicago Metropolitan area. Participants should have a interest learning more about disability rights issues, women’s right issues, and how the issues of the two oppressed groups intersect.
