Breaking Barriers - Making the Invisible Visible, December 4, 2021

International Day of Persons with Disabilities Conference December 4, 2021 from 1 - 4 PM E.S.T. - Virtual Meeting / Zoom

The goal for this Year's conference is to spread awareness of invisible disabilities as well as the impact that COVID-19 pandemic has had on mental health. This virtual conference will be accessible to all and will feature ASL interpreters and real time live captioning. AMI’s Joeita Gupta will co-host and AMI will broadcast live.

Joeita Gupta is the host and producer of The Pulse on AMI-audio. She is also a CBC Radio columnist on disability issues and an editor/reporter on CBC Toronto's Metro Morning. She lives in downtown Toronto with many houseplants, and her husband.

You will hear from diverse speakers with lived experience with disability who share their stories and experiences. The speakers will have a fireside chat about why it is so awkward to talk about invisible disabilities and mental health. This conference will be very interactive, and we want to hear your voices and your stories.
