Pipella Law: Proud to Support Mobility Change Makers YYC!
On October 6, 2021, Calgary Alternative Support Services Inc., in partnership with Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Alberta, held the first annual Mobility Change Makers YYC event as part of Disability Employment Awareness Month—an annual celebration of the contributions made by workers with disabilities, and an acknowledgement of the ongoing work necessary to reduce employment accessibility barriers.
Mobility Change Makers YYC invited members of the community to utilize assistive technology and equipment for a day to better understand just a few of the challenges people with mobility disabilities must overcome every day to achieve independence, self-reliance, inclusive employment, and full participation in our communities.
Pipella Law is proud to have been a key sponsor for the first annual Mobility Change Makers YYC event.
