New DABC project: Injury and Impacts: Stories of Disability and Road Safety

DABC will be creating a series of short videos that raises awareness about the impacts of road accidents on people’s lives. We will create 5 video vignettes of personal accounts of people with disabilities who acquired their disability because of a road accident.

The stories of people living with a disability will also raise awareness about people with disabilities as active, contributing members of our communities adapting to the changes in their lives because of a road accident.

This project has been generously supported by ICBC’s Community Grants Program.

We are seeking individuals who reside in Metro Vancouver and are living with a disability due to a road accident who are interested in participating in our project. Please contact Karen, karen@disabilityalliancebc.org for more information.
