The Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) has published two new videos through its Commonwealth Parliamentarians with Disabilities (CPwD) network to highlight the issues facing people with disabilities. These new videos on legislation and representation, education & advocacy provide guidance to Commonwealth Parliaments and their Members on how to enhance these aspects of their institutions.
The video on legislation features New South Wales Minister for Families, Communities and Disability Services, Hon. Gareth Ward, MP and Liesl Tesch, AM, MP, both of the New South Wales Legislative Assembly.
