BC PEOPLE FIRST COMMUNITY EVENTS

At BCPF we work to stop the stigma surrounding intellectual and developmental disabilities and unite our Members' voices in the fight to be considered People First. The fight to not have people speak for us or down to us and to help everyone in society understand what "nothing about us without us" really means and why it matters.

As volunteers and members, we write letters, do presentations, and advocate with governments about issues affecting people with disabilities. We advocate for all people to be seen as equal citizens and for issues that matter to us as BCPF Members.

We offer private presentations about self-advocacy, the CRPD, and human rights for local companies, school groups, and other organizations. Plus, we offer some free public community events as well – find more details below!
