Inclusion BC launched a civic engagement campaign to connect our members and community ambassadors with MLAs across British Columbia. The campaign, Diversity Includes, is designed to highlight the themes that are of most importance to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families – taking into account that too often they are left out of conversations on diversity and inclusion in our communities.
To connect with your MLA and become a community ambassador please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are some resources that will take you through the experience of being a Community Ambassador.
Lining up your meeting:
- Meeting with your MLA (Tips and Resources)
- You can get a template email to send to your MLA by emailing email@example.com with your name and some details about who you are.
Preparing for your meeting:
To help you prepare Inclusion BC will meet with you and share our background sheets on our priority issues. You can bring these background sheets with you to your meeting, or you can send them to your MLA before or after you meet.
- Supports to Children and Families
- Inclusive Education
- Income Security and Disability Support
- Inclusive Housing

We want to know how the meeting with your MLA went. After your meeting, please fill out this short survey. Hearing about your experience helps us in our advocacy efforts.
