BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Tracy Humphreys, she/her
Founder, Chair and Executive Director
Tracy is a lifelong volunteer and social justice advocate/activist, and found her passion for education advocacy when she was a student activist at UVic. This advocacy became focused on K-12 through having 3 children, and she came to disability justice through her children’s experiences with barriers to access to education because of their disabilities. During this time she also uncovered her own disabilities.
In 2014, she pulled together a province-wide network of BC parents and guardians of children and youth with disabilities of every kind, which eventually led to the establishment of the BCEdAccess Society, a provincial charity advocating for equitable access to education.
Anne Whitmore, Treasurer
Anne stumbled into advocacy as she raised her 4 children (2 have multiple disabilities) and was deeply troubled by the common stories and pain that she heard from other families in their struggle for inclusion and accessible supports for their children.
She found her voice (and the BCEdAccess community) in advocating with her school district and has served on the executive of her local PAC and DPAC with a focus on communication and inclusion. Anne is committed to supporting parent and caregivers in finding their way as advocates and parents through her work as a certified coach and trainer in programs like the Circle of Security Parenting™ to support family connections and emotional resilience..
Chantelle Morvay-Adams, Secretary
Chantelle is a passionate advocate for Inclusion. Her journey started over 11 years ago with the birth of her first son. A life full of detours, this new one in her life catapulted her into the role of advocate.
She believes creating connections in our local communities can help strengthen understanding of our diverse identities that will ultimately help those historically marginalized to flourish and to reach their full potential.
This led her to take up the role of DPAC C0-Chair for the Mission School District, . She also started an Inclusion Subcommittee at her children’s school to foster a mindset of Inclusion within the school community. She also won honourable mention for her CIVL 101.7 radio show, All In, delving into what Inclusion means to individuals and society as a whole.
The Board of Directors of the BCEdAccess Society works with a dedicated group of active volunteers comprising our Advisory Board, who make up the voting membership of the Society and help guide the strategic direction of the organization. As members of different Board committees, they also take on different roles such as moderating the community Facebook group, and help plan and execute group actions. Individually and collectively, members of our discussion group take up action which we support and promote.
