Join the hundreds of people with disability and supporters of the NSW Disability Advocacy Alliance in Martin Place on this Sunday (24 February) from 11am to 12pm, as we step up our campaign to secure long term funding for disability advocacy, information and peak representation services.
Be there early to catch music legend Mic Conway and his band warming up the crowd. We will hear from speakers about their experiences accessing disability advocacy organisations and politicians from across the spectrum talking about this crucial issue.
Politicians confirmed to speak (so far) are:
- Alex Greenwich MP, Independent Member for Sydney
