A dear friend has requested help in changing the name from Disabled to Para-abled via a Government Petition.
Jan Cocks (she is disabled and an educator in the field) just sent me an email for her petition: Disabled! I prefer Para-abled. Para-abled aligns with Paralympic and Paramedic.
If you agree with her choice of wording could you please help Jan Cocks by signing this petition and asking others to do the same. Jan is emailing many people because she needs the Government to act and change these words. Federal MP Warren Entsch said that he will take it to Parliament for her.
Go to the top where it says Current (12) then drop down to her petition about 3rd position.
Thank you for your help in joining her quest if you so choose.
