COVID-19 Pandemic: A Self-Advocate Voice in Support of the Community

Surrey, BC: Four videos on the Coronavirus have been produced by people with disabilities to share with their community, Canada and the world. The Self-Advocates of Semiahmoo, SAS, with the financial support of UNITI created the videos to highlight the importance of our actions in this time. What we do affects others and we have the choice to be there for everyone in getting through this safely.

SAS is a community organization that has 25 active members who all identify as having a disability. SAS makes changes through positive relationships. SAS has been federally recognized for their work on the Canadian Accessibility Act and for bringing beach wheelchairs to White Rock Beach, in collaboration with the City of White Rock and Feral Boardsports, and Crescent Beach, in collaboration with the City of Surrey.

UNITI is the partnership of three affiliated societies that have provided important community services for decades. One affiliate, Semiahmoo House Society provides quality services and supports to people with disabilities and their families in Surrey and White Rock. Together we’re stronger.
