Stories about "Echo Community Awards":
The local literati and glitterati packed the Mullumbimby Civic Centre on Saturday night to celebrate The Echo’s 30 years of publication and to honour some of the people who help make this region so special.
Here at The Echo we have seen and heard the word ‘housing’ come up time and again throughout the local government election campaign period, whether it’s from candidates or other voters.
We know the region has some of the highest rents, and highest housing costs in Australia. We all know that this has virtually eliminated affordable housing. We hear the stories of women and children being evicted, of couch surfing and living in cars.
This language trend around People With a Disability has tended to emphasise the disability rather than the person, which can lead to derogatory labelling, depersonalisation or impersonal, collective references.
