Goals of Disability Advocacy

Disability advocacy works to ensure that rights are promoted and protected so that people with disability can fully participate in the community. This is done by:

  • Promoting and upholding the human rights of people with disability
  • Empowering people with disability to make decisions affecting their lives
  • Honouring and valuing the lived experience of people with disability
  • Promoting inclusiveness and accessibility by identifying and addressing barriers
  • Addressing and preventing discrimination by educating others about the rights of people with disability.
