a series of lectures on different aspects of the campaign in Ontario for new laws to
protect the rights of people with disabilities to
accessibility, to good services, facilities and all the other things that
our society has to offer. That lecture series is now to be gonna be made available on YouTube as a series of
lectures organized to help you understand what we fought for,
the strategies we’ve used, what we learned and where
we’re going next. I hope you enjoy the video series. And these were given in different classes
at different times but we hope they fit together to tell a good
story and a helpful story. We’d like to hear from you what you
