Calgary, Alberta “Disability On the Move!!!” Friday, June 1st, 2012
 
 
Members of the Disability Action Hall are very excited to prepare for the 14th annual Speak Out Rally. This year we want to emphasize the 'Action' in Action Hall by celebrating Disability On The Move. We want to increase awareness of the freedom we enjoy with access to transportation.

As part of this year’s kickoff, various arts groups and Action Hall
members will be performing at LRT platforms in the city.  As well, there will be performances and activities at Olympic Plaza and in the John Dutton Theatre at the Main Library.
