The Her Power Team, comprised of four women with disabilities, is currently implementing a violence prevention strategy through a self-empowerment intervention program for teen girls with disabilities. The program is delivered through a four day, overnight event entitled “Her Power, Her Pride, Her Voice,” for teen girls with disabilities in Michigan (Her Power). Moving forward into its sixth year, the program implements a recruitment strategy which focuses on the inclusion of girls with disabilities, those who currently receive foster care or are living in group homes, participants of refugee services, and girls whose lives have intersected with the criminal justice system.
