BCSALN (BC Self Advocates Leadership Network Society) will be hosting a zoom viewing of the movie Freedom Tour created by People First of Canada December 8 at 7:30 pm.
It is important to BCSALN that we don’t forget the past so that we don’t repeat it – the importance of not forgetting history and learning from history. This is a powerful film that reminds our world all people matter.
If you have not seen it yet, we highly recommend it.
