New Horizons Program 509

This week on program 509 of New Horizons, ahead of some important announcements, we hear from Ross Joyce, the CEO of AFDO, the Australian Federation of Disability Organisations. Ross explains the inappropriate comments made recently by one of our federal politicians, and we discuss how you too may make your displeasure at these discriminatory and offensive comments known. Also, a follow-up on Audio Description, and an interesting invitation from our president.
