IL in Geneva
We gave evidence to the UN in August alongside our sister DDPOs
Deaf and Disabled People’s Organisations were hailed as “world leaders” by the UN for their efforts in bringing to light the injustices and human rights violations inflicted on Disabled people in the UK.The UN Disability Committee condemned the UK government, saying that austerity policies have caused a ‘human catastrophe’ for Deaf and Disabled people in the UK.
DDPOs and the thousands of Deaf and Disabled people we work with can feel very proud at the contribution we made. Catch up here:
