Community Living Ontario and many of its member associations are celebrating authentic inclusion, the stories and people who are making a difference. Together, they launched Spark Change this week, a public awareness campaign that showcases diverse and inspirational stories of people from across Ontario that are having a positive impact in the lives of one another.
“We all want the same opportunities to participate in meaningful ways in the community” said Ron Laroche, Director of Communications, Marketing and Fund Development. “This campaign features inspiring people and initiatives that are making that happen, much like the parents, brothers and sisters, friends and neighbours that started the Community Living movement more than 60 years ago, and it also encourages others to nominate people who are sparking change in their respective communities.”
The campaign includes Luke Anderson and Danny Steeves from StopGap, former Minister of Community and Social Services John Baird, London law firm Cohen Highley, Community Living Toronto’s Spinclusion initiative and community activists Gurvir, Nav and Sara Singh.
People can learn more about the inclusion champions featured in the campaign or nominate someone who is sparking change in their community by visiting the website – SparkChangeToday.com.
