Join Thomas Bryan as he explores the diversity of disability issues.
To celebrate International Day of Persons with Disabilities (December 3) No Labels has a special show.
Thomas is talking with Martine Able-Williamson.
Martine was born in Namibia, and went to school in south Africa. She has been an advocate, lecturer, and policy advisor for the New Zealand's disability sector for more than 20 years.
She also wrote New Zealand's world leading policy on the safe design of shared spaces where pedestrians and cars share the road.
Martine's many other roles include being treasurer of the World Blind Union, chair of the Auckland Disability Law Centre, vice-president of Blind Citizens New Zealand and lead of the Asia Pacific Regional UN Advocacy Network.
As well as being the 2018 Supreme winner of the Attitude Awards.
No Labels is a programme about your community with a focus on accessibility for all. The show looks at services which might assist you, and highlights topics and challenges that might pose barriers for older people, or those living with or experiencing disability.
In each programme we interview someone from the community whose role, paid or voluntary, provides topical and current information relating to our community.
Each show has a disability/accessibility focus and the issues this might pose for our community.
Guests share about their role in the community, a little about themselves and their favourite music.
Tune in every week, Tuesdays, at 1pm.
