Rally for Equality to be held November 12 at NS Legislature

11/3/2015

Rally for Equality: Why are blind Nova Scotians treated differently?

Nova Scotians who have lost their sight due to injury or disease are relying on charitable dollars to receive essential rehabilitation – specialized services and programs that enable them to remain independent, healthy and active, in their homes and communities.

When a Nova Scotian requires rehabilitation for reasons other than vision loss – as a result of a stroke, a brain injury, hearing loss or an amputation, for example – rehabilitative services, such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and the support of an audiologist or social worker are provided within our health care system.

The availability of rehabilitation should not be dependent upon a charity’s capacity to generate donations.

We need your help to urge the government of Nova Scotia to provide sufficient, sustainable funding for vision rehabilitation therapy.

Please join us for the Rally for Equality taking place on
Thursday, November 12:

11:30 a.m. Rally participants will meet at Grand Parade Square in front of City Hall.

12:15 p.m. Rally participants will march to the NS Legislature (Province House).
