Zoom Meeting For the past year we have been running free workshops to help people know about and use human rights in their life.
Image One of these workshops was with Bristol Reclaiming Independent Living. This is a community group run by and for Disabled people, neuro-divergent people, people living with chronic illness, and people who experience mental distress.
Date Apr 27 This workshop took place on 27 April 2021. Some things we said at this workshop might have changed since then.
Easy Read Logo We wanted to make this workshop accessible to lots of people, so we had British Sign Language interpreters, captions, and Easy Read information.
Tick Yes We recorded this workshop so other people could watch it and learn about their rights. Scroll down to watch videos from this workshop.
