Kory Earle

Kory Earle is President of People First of Canada. When it comes to the right to live in community, he says, he knows his history. As a young self-advocate, he speaks of those who have worked to ensure that he and future generations will never have to experience life in an institution. Through their words, actions, lives, and sometimes their deaths, he acknowledges the important work of self-advocates in closing institutions. He also acknowledges the many partners, allies, families, friends, and supporters it takes to ensure the right to live in community. But, he cautions, closed institutions are no guarantee of a good life in the community. http://www.peoplefirstontario.com/
