Australians speak out
THREE people will share their stories of living with disabilities at Soapbox Speaker Events in South Perth tomorrow.
During Disability Awareness Week, groups and communities come together to support a fair go for everyone.
“The City of South Perth is committed to an inclusive community, and the hosting of the Soapbox Speaker Event is a way of raising an awareness of disability, access and inclusion in our community,” Mayor Sue Doherty said.
“Disability Awareness Week is an important time to highlight the hundreds of disabilities, conditions and diagnosis that are not visibly obvious, yet can still affect everyday life. The week serves as a reminder of what still needs to be done to ensure Australians with disability have access to opportunities to fully participate in social and economic life.” There will be two sessions.
