The Canterbury Earthquake Disability Leadership Group is a disability community collective advocating for a 100% accessible Christchurch rebuild. Led by disabled people, the group is a partnership between key disabled leaders, disabled people’s organisations (DPOs) , family/whanau, providers and regional officials in Christchurch.
Your Story Communications has written and had published numerous media releases for the group, created marketing material and assisted with event management for a number of seminars of EDLG. We also coordinated all publicity, marketing and media management for the launch of Accessible Christchurch: Every Body. Every Where. This event received network news coverage and various print media articles – including this story in Canterbury Today.
Watch a video here about Accessible Christchurch. The Press covered the launch of the campaign with several stories – read on of them here. This You Tube clip was recorded at the event and was shared extensively around the world.
