We wish to acknowledge that we live on the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nations. These are the lands of the
Dish-with-One-Spoon-Treaty. The place where the city of Toronto is right now, has been the site of human habitation for at least 15 thousand years.
Why We March:
To bring recognition of the struggles and value of disabled and mad people as we fight against ableism and other forms of oppression.
To be visible and show that we have a voice in our community and a right to be heard by taking to the streets.
To celebrate and take pride in ourselves as a community of disabled and mad people.
