The Ethnic Communities’ Council of Victoria and Diversity and Disability (DnD) share a belief that the most effective advocacy comes from people with a lived experience and therefore disability advocacy is strongest coming from people with disability. There will be a Self Advocacy Training and Feast for Ethnic people with disability at the Foodstore, Fryer St, Shepparton on Wednesday, 3 December, 2019.
The Self Advocacy Training aims to empower people from an Ethnic background with disability to advocate for themselves.
