Two quick ways you can help our accessibility campaign
March 9, 2012
Please take five minutes to help with our accessibility campaign. Here are two easy-to-use action tips:
1. Email the Andrew Pinto Human Rights Code Review to say
if you support the AODA Alliance's brief on how to fix problems with enforcing
human rights in
We are delighted that a number of individuals and organizations have already told the Pinto Review that they endorse our March 1, 2012 brief. If you don't have much time, you can simply send the Pinto Review a short email that says in one sentence if you support the AODA Alliance's March 1, 2012 brief on fixing Ontario's system for enforcing human rights. If you have more time, you of course can share your thoughts with the Pinto Review in greater detail.
You can email the Pinto Review at:
If you are on FaceBook, it would be great if you would post on your wall an encouragement for your friends to also tell the Pinto Review if they support the AODA Alliance's March 1, 2012 brief. For example, you could cut and paste the following onto your FaceBook wall:
"Please email the Andrew Pinto Ontario Human Rights Code review at email@example.com even just a one-line message to say if you support the AODA Alliance's March 1, 2012 brief on improving access to human rights protection in Ontario. Urge others to do so as well. You can download that brief at http://www.aodaalliance.org/docs/march%201%202012%20entire%20final%20aoda%20alliance%20brief%20to%20andrew%20pinto%20human%20rights%20code%20review.doc"
If you are on FaceBook, you can also help us by "liking" the posting on the AODA Alliance's FaceBook wall that says the same thing. You can find us on Facebook by searching for "Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act Alliance", or by going to Find us on Facebook
