Mobilize Waco was born in 2018, under the original name of the Amberley Collaborative. Founder Meg Wallace was searching for ways to increase community support for people experiencing disability and other potentially isolating challenges. After five years of exploration and community engagement, the Amberley Collaborative had developed a strong network of disabled self-advocates and their allies, and it was time for a name change. In 2023, we became Mobilize Waco. With a capacity-building grant from the Waco Foundation, we completed our rebranding in fall of that year.
