What are the events like?

Each month's events are organized by Disability EmpowHer Network staff in coordination with an EmpowHer Roc+ participant. Activities have included: creating vision boards, practicing make up and self care, and putting together gratitude journals. 

No matter what the activity is, we can guarantee that every monthly event will be filled with friendship, growth, laughter, and food!
