British Columbians with disabilities and their allies are invited to join a volunteer driven, grassroots social and political forum where they can engage in discussions, support one another, and share information on issues relevant to living with a disability in BC. It is also a forum where a broad spectrum of topics that can touch disability are presented and may resonate here in British Columbia or that people may find interesting in general.
