The annual BCPF award winners were announced at the AGM on April 13th.
2022 Phil Allen BCPF President’s Award
This award is chosen by the BC People First Board of Directors for someone who is a BCPF Member and has had a long-term impact on the People First movement and self-advocacy movement in BC.
The winner of the 2022 Phil Allen BCPF President’s Award is…Bryce Shaufelberger.
Bryce was selected for his longstanding role in keeping the SelfAdvocateNet website and resources going all these years (over 15 years!) and for always being a voice of reason at the many self-advocacy group meetings he attends. He is always standing up for the needs and rights of people with disabilities and the injustices we face in society.
Bryce is very passionate about “nothing about us without us” and has worked tirelessly to fight for this human right for himself and others in BC. He knows a lot about the CRPD, the Accessible Canada Act, and other resources – he is always making sure people get the information they need to be successful self-advocates.
