Peterborough celebrates National AccessAbility Week 2017
National Accessibility Week (NAW) is an opportunity to bring together, in a spirit of partnership, individuals, organizations related to persons with disabilities, businesses and different levels of governments to affect meaningful changes in the daily lives of persons with disabilities. National Accessibility Week was initially conceived by Rick Hansen, following his Man in Motion world tour in 1987.
Ten events were held throughout the City and County during the week of May 27 – June 2, 2018, offering opportunities to create education and awareness for accessibility.
“People don’t have disabilities, they have a disabled community … if we had access for everything, we could not worry about disability in any way, shape or form,” stated CPD Board Chairman John McNutt.
Help us celebrate Accessibility and Inclusion in our community!
