Want to learn more about how to create accessible neighbourhoods? Or how your disability might intersect with other aspects of your identity? Join Heather McCain on Monday, August 22nd from 12-1pm PT to talk about Creating Accessible Neighbourhoods (CAN) and their educational workshops.

Heather McCain (they/them) is Executive Director of Creating Accessible Neighbourhoods (CAN), a non-profit they founded in 2005. Heather’s own experiences with multiple types of disabilities, neurodivergence, inaccessibility, and ableism led them to become a well-known and respected advocate, speaker, educator, and activist who works to create equity, celebrate diversity, and educate about and implement accessibility.
Heather is proudest to be called a Crip Doula. This is a Disability Justice term for someone who helps disabled people navigate our complex systems, provides resources, support, and builds community.

Please note that this live Zoom event will be recorded and streamed to Facebook and YouTube, where it will remain available for our community to enjoy after the session has ended. Closed captioning for this event will be available on these platforms.
