Kaitlyn Layden on Disability Discrimination in Housing
Join us on World Cerebral Palsy Day, Wednesday, October 6, for a talk by Kaitlyn Layden, a disability rights advocate, on disability discrimination in housing. World Cerebral Palsy Day organizers ask that people around the world come together to celebrate and support those living with CP, embrace diversity and to help create a more accessible future for everyone.
Kaitlyn will share her journey with the Household Income Policy. In New Brunswick if you are on social assistance but your partner or roommate is not, you are likely to be forced to live apart due to the Household Income Policy. Read Kaitlyn’s work published by the NB Media Co-op here.
When: Wednesday, Oct. 6 at 7:00pm

This talk is timely as the government of New Brunswick releases results of its social assistance review and disability rights advocates demand more. Read Global’s report here:
