Forum29 Enabling persons with disabilities to participate in public and political life
Almost 60 delegates participated in panel discussions and interactive sessions centred on the topic of how to inspire Nova Scotians living with disabilities to get involved with the political system and democracy.
The one day seminar was attended by many Nova Scotians living with disabilities, the leaders of all three mainstream political parties in Nova Scotia as well as many other elected officials from different levels of government. Among the key learnings was the many myths that exist about people with disabilities and the many myths and misunderstandings that exist surrounding the political system and democracy as we know it in Nova Scotia.
