those who have impacted community inclusion practices for persons with disabilities, in alberta
Selected Nominees will be featured in a book and need to be willing to participate in a short interview and be photographed
In Celebration of Canada’s 150th Anniversary, Foothills Special Needs Association for Parents and Siblings (FSNAPS), is creating a beautiful coffee table book, with e-versions, celebrating 150 years of the progress towards inclusion in Alberta. Photographs will be the main point with short interviews and commentaries about pioneering and/or outstanding individuals or groups who have furthered inclusion practices to become an increasing reality in our wonderful province.
Our goal is to celebrate those who have transformed the current situation as a "given" and helped bring about breakthroughs and understanding, through acts of dedication and distinction. While human rights legislation has stated that everyone has a right to be included, we know that changing attitudes, values, beliefs and practices takes long-standing and consistent effort.
NOMINATE A PERSON OR A GROUP WHO HAS IMPACTED COMMUNITY INCLUSION FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES IN ALBERTA
Our goal is to highlight the actions of individuals and/or organizations who have, over the past century and one half, dedicated themselves to provide education and services to help envision & sustain those with disabilities as participants in their communities. These organizations and individuals had a vision that every Albertan could be included and involved in their community, rather than side-lined and underachieving, bringing diversity & strength to the entire province.
