Beginning of 2020, we have initiated an informal group of self-advocates. The group is made up of young people with intellectual and mental disabilities who wish their voices to be heard under the principle “Nothing About Us Without Us”.
The objective of the activity is to empower them, with our support, to take actions which would contribute to the greater visibility of the position of our citizens with intellectual and mental disabilities. MDRI-S self-advocates meet on a regular basis to discuss important topics and thus prepare themselves to take part in public policies.
On regular basis, we organize workshops to empowe self-advocates to discuss important issues, guided by the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
At the moment, we are working on easy-to-read materials so that the information can be accessible to other persons with intelectual and mental disabilities.
One of the ideas is to create a database of easy to read photos.
For that we need your support!
