SPARC BC – Access Awareness Day

The Social Planning and Research Council of BC (SPARC BC) has designated Saturday, June 6th as Access Awareness Day.

“Celebrated annually on the first Saturday in June, Access Awareness Day is a comprehensive campaign to raise awareness about disability, accessibility, and inclusion.

Access Awareness Day has been made possible because of dedicated and inspired individuals who understand the importance of inclusion; the recognition that both the right and the opportunity to participate in all aspects of human life enable individuals and communities to celebrate their diversity and recognize their responsibilities.

Access Awareness Day is ultimately about more than just one day a year. It is a call to respond creatively and purposefully to build a society where barriers to inclusion are removed, and to ensure the independence, self-esteem, dignity, and security of all citizens.”
