Come one, come all! The Wellington Down Syndrome Association is holding its AGM and we would love to see all your lovely faces in attendance. Meet some other parents and find out what we have planned and how you can help. The more people we can get to help on the committee the less work we all have to do, hooray! Do you have some cool contacts or some fantastic fundraising ideas? We would love to hear about it so come along and join us, Monday 17 June, 7.30pm at Wellington Early Intervention Trust, 79 Copeland Street, Epuni, Lower Hutt.

Our guest speaker Carey-Ann is a Research Advisor for Imagine Better and an Honorary Associate in the Geography Program at the University of Waikato. She is a parent to a young son who has Down syndrome. Carey-Ann holds a PhD in human geography and works at the intersection of research and activism to challenge the marginalisation and discrimination of disabled people from a range of everyday spaces. She believes that research should be community-driven and works with disabled people and families to produce new knowledge for creating diverse and inclusive communities.

Imagine Better is a collective of disability activists, advocates and allies working to be a nationally influential thought leader, trainer, research and advocacy organisation supporting the growth and effectiveness of the disability rights, visibility and justice movements. Imagine Better is also a partner in the Family and Whanau Leadership Alliance.
