DABC Statement in Solidarity with Anti-Racism Protests

In solidarity with the anti-racism protests across the US and Canada in recent weeks, we have been thinking about systemic racism in Canada, and how we can be more accessible and representative in our direct services and systemic advocacy. We acknowledge our ongoing responsibility to listen and learn to ensure our disability advocacy is anti-racist, inclusive, and considers how disability intersects with other forms of oppression. We are committed to doing our own research and creating space for feedback from BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Colour) and people from other marginalized communities about how we can do better.
