It’s time to end ableism. Start by talking about it.

Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital is taking a bold step in ending ableism for kids and youth with disabilities. Ableism is the discrimination towards someone based on their abilities, often favouring those who do not have a disability and seeing less value in those that do. And it needs to stop. Over the past four years, Holland Bloorview’s Dear Everybody campaign has been confronting personal and systemic ableism and this year we’re calling on the community to join in.

Dear Everybody, let’s talk about it.

About the Dear Everybody campaign

Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital’s Dear Everybody campaign is a national movement to end stigma and eliminate bias against people with disability. The campaign returns for the fifth year with powerful conversation starters, inspired by the kids and youth we serve, in an effort to talk about and #EndAbleism. In a society that predominantly favours those who don’t live with a disability, it’s important we start talking about it to pave the way for a more inclusive and accessible world for all.
