International Human Rights Day 2021

    It’s International Human Rights Day today. Usually we try to have some kind of learning event on this date because our organization is focused on the human right to equitable access to education.

    However, we just finished our 8 Days Of Action For Access and our volunteer team is pretty spent 🙂

    So instead, we’re sharing the highlights from these days of action, but first, some information about human rights from the United Nations:

    The 8 Days of Action for Access was an incredible grassroots effort, supported by many organizations:

    BC People First, BC Complex Kids Society, ACT Autism Community Training, Autism BC, Down Syndrome BC, GIRLS CLUB, Family Support Institute, Inclusion BC, BC Teacher’s Federation and Dyslexia BC

    Here are just a couple of photos from the Day 8 rally, we’ll add more as we get permission:

She is standing on the bottom step of a wide set of concrete stairs with columns behind her (the Vancouver Art Gallery) and a lion on a pedestal. huge banners behind her say IMAGINE DISABILITY RIGHTS. A person with a camera is just behind her off to the side, filming.
