We are running this campaign to draw attention to the issues that people with intellectual disabilities and their families say are the biggest barriers to inclusion.
In November and December 2019 we are focusing the conversation on Communities.
We demand to be included and part of our communities.
We want to get as many people as possible to hear our message and to take notice of the issue.When we all come together we have a very loud voice which cannot be ignored.
We want you to be part of change and join the conversation:
Our movement has knowledge, evidence and experience creating inclusive communities. We want to hear about the process for you. Share your experiences and challenges with our network.
We are collecting examples on the different ways in which our members are working to include persons with intellectual disabilities and their families in the community. We will share these examples with you to give you some ideas about what you can do to take action and change things.
If you have any images or videos of your project, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org or send them via WhatsApp to +447840325771.
