PWDA Alert
  Friday 28 August 2015
Dear ,
 
Barriers to Communication is the topic of the next PWDA social media forum and you're invited to join us for the discussion tomorrow, Saturday 29 August, from 10am to 4pm Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST).

During the forum we will be on Facebook and Twitter posting a range of questions that you can respond to and use to share your concerns or ideas with us and each other.
 
PWDA Board members will be taking part in the conversation and you can also have your say on Twitter using the hashtag #b2c4pwd.

Questions will be accessible for Auslan users, who can watch a You Tube video prepared by board member Alex Jones.

Alex will also be available from 1pm-4pm on Skype (pwda_auslan) to answer any questions or engage in discussion using Auslan. 

Questions will also be available through Survey Monkey so that people who are unable to join in the live discussion can express their views, share their experiences and contribute their ideas.
 
Click this link to visit our Barriers to Communication Social Media Forum event page on Facebook for more information, to access questions, and to join in the discussion from 10am AEST tomorrow.

The feedback you provide us during the forum will inform our policy and advocy work including the development of our 2016 Federal Election Platform, monitoring implementation of the National Disability Strategy, and specific advocacy on barriers to social and economic inclusion such as access to employment, transport, political participation and communication in emergency situations.
