Fenland People's Assembly have organised an event for people with or without disabilities to raise awareness of the difficulties and disproportionate impact of the reforms and the demonisation of the disabled community.
We have some great speakers for our informal event, where you will get the chance to speak to people who are fighting your corner...and have been for some time.
It will also be an opportunity to meet others in similar situations and discuss how we can move forward.
