Right to Play Festival

Disability Action Hall in Calgary Canada have an amazing self advocacy and community awareness action group.  I was lucky enough to meet a number of their group in 2011 on my Ethel Temby study tour.

Many times they organise street parades or community events to encourage all Calgary citizens to become active and aware of the needs of people with a disability

Check out their Facebook page, you can see their current Festival agenda on "The Right to Play."

Other areas they have previously been involved in and continue to advocate about include: concession bus fares, the right to marry without needing a doctor’s authority, relationship equality, anti bullying. 

One of their Facebook posts back in 2011 sums up their Call to Action 


Many of participants are linked with Vecova and have been involved in the development of publications which makes it easier for them to be engaged in their community. Some of their projects have been 
  • It’s My History, Too
  • Dating Violence Awareness
  • Think then Drink
  • Guard Against Bullying
You may find some of the content too complex still, but it could be used as ideas for your own projects, or a starting point for something you are working on now.  Projects Link

Talk to me about your Projects.  I can support you to develop your information and projects into Easy English
