Happy new year and welcome to 2023! A new year can feel like a chance for new beginnings.
As we think about new habits and goals, we want to share some ideas about how we can think about creating more inclusive spaces. In this newsletter, you’ll find some articles about things like disability representation in the media and in everyday society. Winter and the new year can also be challenging times.
The dark days can drag on and it can be depressing to be stuck inside when the weather is cold and makes it difficult to get around. At times like this, it is important to stay connected and to let people know if you are struggling.
We were excited to see that there is a new campaign called ‘988 Campaign for Canada’. 988 will be
the crisis hotline for those in mental health crises. Check out the article about this. As we start the new year, we wish you good health and lots of opportunities for connection and inclusion. May it be a year filled with kindness and compassion!
