This week on program 489 of New Horizons, we hear from Lauren Henley about a submission Blind Citizens Australia is making, providing feedback about the National Disability Strategy. She explains where the strategy fits into the broad landscape of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and how you can have your thoughts and ideas known. BCA needs to have your comments by 5th March, in order to be included in its submission.
