Raise Your Voice on International Day of Persons with Disabilities

It’s International Day of Persons with Disabilities! At CNIB, we believe advocacy and self-advocacy are integral to the independent lives of persons with sight loss in Canada and around the world.

CNIB is proud to release a series of three self-advocacy videos. Whether you’ve been a self-advocate for decades or you’re new to the world of self-advocacy, you’ll find some tips, tricks, and thought-provoking insights in these videos!

Raise your voice today, and every day, and help CNIB advocate for a more inclusive world for persons with sight loss.

This project was funded by Novartis Pharma Canada Inc.
