The Kamloops Self Advocate Newsletter

No matter what your disability is, you can accomplish a lot in this world and have a life filled with love and joy! That’s what Krystian Shaw will tell you. Born with an intellectual disability, he knew he wouldn’t be able to go to university to reach his goal of becoming a social worker, but he didn’t get discouraged. Our mission and vision: We promote Community Inclusion, including ideas like social justice, social inclusion, kindness and compassion, anti-bullying, mental health issues and all disabilities. We promote success stories about the challenges that many face. Instead of focusing on a label, we like to refer to the idea of diverse abilities. We promote entertainment, lifestyle issues, and community events. We also promote the idea of reducing stigma and discrimination, preferring to stomp it out completely.
