Episode 118 – Radical Inclusion and Disability Rights

On this episode, we find out about the Radical Inclusion Program created by John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights.

In August of 2021, the John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights released a report on the Status of Rights of People Living with Disability in Alberta.  Our correspondent, Karli Drew, shows us why disability rights are human rights, not privileges.
