Making Advocacy Accessible
The Making Advocacy Accessible project is a project run by the Commons Library with guidance from People With Disability Australia and the Council for Intellectual Disability. The Commons Library equips people to be active citizens, influence public policy and engage in political structures. Many people experience barriers to being active citizens due to difficulty accessing and understanding advocacy resources.
In this collection you will find Easy Read publications, guides to improving accessibility, and stories of campaigns led by people with disability.
Thank you to the State Trustees of Victoria for funding for this project.
