Leaving no one behind through the full implementation of the ‘CRPD’

The employment rate for women with disabilities is 30% lower than for men with disabilities! Women with disabilities face a double discrimination.

This has to end if we are to truly leave no one behind!  The Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities  promotes & protects the rights of persons with disabilities.

Countries meet at the UN disability conference this week.

Human Rights Day – 1O December

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein on Human Rights Day 2017 and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

“All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. You. Me. Everyone. In our daily lives, our schools and work, in our political and community life, all of us can uphold that fundamental truth and build a better global community for us all.”

Take action. #Standup4humanrights
