As preparation for the job ahead PLAN Institute and its partners are presenting this four-part webinar series to learn from four Canadians with expertise and experience in system change.


Goals of Learning Series:

  • To learn from other successful movements
  • To strengthen the social, political, economic and cultural power of the Canadian disability movement
  • To clarify the role of parents, families, service providers, funders and other allies in supporting disability leadership
  • To secure a Canadian Disability Benefit that is meaningful, inclusive and ends disability poverty

The Power of a Disability Media

This webinar starts from the premise that we are already a disability media. That we have common purpose, rich and varied stories, and legions of public opinion shapers who use a variety of media platforms. When we bring all these together, we become a media power that rivals traditional media outlets. And enables us to become a peer of mainstream media, influence the stories they cover. Address the negative myths, stigma, stories and attitudes about people with disabilities. And rally ordinary Canadians behind specific disability initiatives like a Canadian Disability Benefit.
