International Day of People with Disability December 2020
In 2020, the Brisbane and Gold Coast Hot Topics groups for people with an intellectual disability started regularly meeting online with self-advocacy groups for people with disability in Canada. During these online meetings, the Hot Topics and Canada groups decided to plan and hold an event online on International Day of People with Disability on 3 December 2020.
To start this international online event QDN partnered with ASID, to host a 2 hour webinar bringing over 50 participating together to hear from people with an intellectual disability from all over Australia and Canada to share their stories and concerns around keeping connected as a community during COVID-19. The full webinar is available at https://youtu.be/xswjnUKBO_U.
