In honour of Pride, DAWN Canada presents "Pride At The Intersections," a four-month campaign to highlight the crucial intersections between disability and 2SLGBTQIA+ rights. 

In June, we focused on advocacy, offering insightful resources and data to explore the intersecting forces that shape the diverse experiences and barriers faced by individuals.
