What many people do not realize about the march is that most of the costs come out of the pockets of the organizers. We don’t have the resources to seek permanent funding at this point, and we would not accept funding that would restrict our advocacy work.
The funds we use cover things like:
- Accessibility needs like ASL and attendants
- Transit fare for those who need it.
- Coffee and snacks, also known as critical marching fuel
- We are also planning on setting up an award in Beverley’s honour.
We need your help to make this year’s march the most awesome yet. Please share what you can today!
We would also like to hear from those in our community who don’t have money to spare, but would like to volunteer, or come on out to the march.
Thank you for anything you can give to keep us marching. See you at the 2017 Toronto Disability Pride March!
