Featured on this program:

In recognition of National Victims of Crime Awareness Week April 6-12, the DisAbled Women’s Network of Canada (DAWN Canada) is launching a campaign aimed at informing women with disabilities and Deaf women about their right to report abuse and to have their abusers tried in court. Entitled “We Can Tell and We Will,” the campaign includes a Public Service Announcement which depicts two women with intellectual disabilities and one with a communication difference describing abuse and stating that abuse is unacceptable. Bonnie Brayton from DAWN talks about it.

We’ll also be joined by members of Accessibilize Montreal. Accessibilize Montreal aims to challenge mainstream perceptions of disability through direct action. Also, The Avalanche’s Aimee Louw will fill us in on her cross-Canada trip to work on her documentary about disabilty justice.
