New Resource Portal Launched

The new Global Disability Rights Now! website can be used by disabled people’s organizations (DPOs), government personnel, legislators, and civil society organizations around the world. A few examples of what one can find at the website:

  • “Principles” of disability rights that illustrate common elements of effective laws around the world.
  • Tools and resources to put your plans “in practice”. For example, how to make trainings accessible, or how to implement disability inclusive education.
  • “Impact” stories reveal strategies used by people around the world to advance disability rights. For example, how a national cross-disability council was established in Myanmar and how indigenous peoples with disabilities in Mexico gained a voice in the United Nations.
  • The “law” section shares information on disability laws in Armenia, Kenya, Mexico, the United States, and Vietnam, as well as the CRPD.

And more! This is only the beginning.
