Today, we had an amazing group of day clients from Connect GV with Tania and Bronwyn from RIAC come and speak to our Community Services and Disability class today about the importance of advocacy.
Tania (pictured above) discussed the work that she does supporting those with disabilities. She explained that she helps those with disabilities speak up for themselves and how important advocacy is, “Sometimes we have to wake people up. Advocacy is one of those contentious issues right now”.
We were delighted with a performance from “Shining Stars” who performed they hit song ‘Shine as Myself’ that brings light to what RIAC and DIAF do.
