Disabled people have developed ways of being together that recognize people’s inherent worth and values what each individual has to offer.

Join us for a discussion about how crip kindness and community care can be transferred to everyday life.

Discussion includes:

Who sets the boundaries of good versus bad behaviour and professionalism.

How to engage in community care to ensure people’s inherent worth is recognized and celebrated. 

Facilitator:

“Heather is passionate about the topic of disability awareness and their enthusiasm helps to encourage participants in believing that by working together we can create a more accessible, equitable, and just world.

I feel equipped and motivated to move forward and put into practice that which I learned from Heather.

I highly suggest Heather as an educator and workshop facilitator. I contemplated that which was covered in the session long after the workshop. I look forward to participating in future workshops by Creating Accessible Neighbourhoods.”
