Be strong. Be safe. Be heard.

On Thursday June 16th, join a Community Forum for Robust Safeguards in Bill C-14 hosted by the National Disability Rights Community. We will let Parliamentarians know what is at stake for disabled Canadians and their families. We need your voice. Stand with us in Ottawa and across Canada this Thursday. EVENT DETAILS: WHAT: Share your story at the Community Forum for Robust Safeguards in Bill C-14. Tell parliamentarians: • Why medically assisted death threatens us • What it means to live with dignity • Why we must limit medically assisted death to those who are dying • That our lives—as they are, in all their human-ness, frailty, beauty and needs—are worth living, and must be valued as any other life PARTICIPATE IN PERSON AT: Rideau Room, Sheraton Ottawa Hotel - 150 Albert Street, Ottawa. If you are joining in person in Ottawa, please RSVP at info@vps-npv.ca.

Jane’s Walk Global Festival

May 6, 2016, 2:00pm

Join the IDI- IDRC Jane’s Walk Global Festival. May 6 from 2 to 3:30 PM, to explore empathy, diversity and inclusion. Empathy: Underground Walk – Inclusive Design Institute – The PATH It is important to talk about diversity and inclusion, but our actions need to support our words. We value diversity in Toronto and see it as an asset. Inclusion, however, remains a challenge and many of our diverse population experience barriers each day. The way to address this challenge is extending our empathy. At the Inclusive Design Institute, we work on understanding the impact of design in everyday life. We believe that design for all of us begins with design for each of us. In this walk, we are going to mull over the largest underground shopping complex in the world and consider how it does and does not meet diverse needs.
