“Staying Safe in the Community when you have a Disability” offers strategies and tips for people with disabilities on safety planning. This resource was created due to a lack of tools available for folks in the disability community to keep themselves safe despite the rising incidences of violence in our communities against marginalized and vulnerable populations.
You are invited to listen to CILT’s interview with Meagan Gillmore at AMI about Food Access and Insecurity in Adults with Mobility Disabilities, this Wednesday November 11 at 9:27am eastern on “Now with Dave Brown”. You can listen live at www.ami.ca/listenlive.
Achieving a Canadian Disability Benefit is an historic opportunity to end disability poverty. No other government in the world has made such a commitment. It will take a lot of work to turn that opportunity into a reality that is meaningful and inclusive. It will take widespread engagement by disabled people from every corner of the country. Including leadership from Quebec and those from racial minorities, the indigenous community, and those discriminated against because of age, race, colour, gender, and sexuality. It will also take widespread popular support from regular Canadians. Finally, it will take bold political decision making.
