Spotlight with Laurie Hardie

Spotlighting Ms. Wheelchair America

Lowery Lockard the CEO of Ms. Wheelchair America and the Dane Foundation along with Candy Kayne Ms. California Wheelchair join us to talk about the mission of Ms. Wheelchair America. Which is to provide an opportunity of achievement for women who happen to be wheelchair users to successfully educate and advocate for the more than 64 million Americans living with disabilities. Unlike traditional beauty pageants, Ms. Wheelchair America is not a contest to select the most attractive individual. It is instead a competition based on advocacy, achievement, communication and presentation to select the most accomplished and articulate spokeswoman for persons with disabilities. The selected representative must be able to communicate both the needs and the accomplishments of her constituency to the general public, the business community and the legislature. https://www.mswheelchairamerica.org/
