We’re calling for the UN and its member countries to uphold disability rights.

Together we can end discrimination against people with disabilities.

About the petition

Petition details

Many people with disabilities around the world face daily denial of their human rights.

The COVID-19 pandemic has increased this inequality, particularly for women and girls with disabilities, and unleashed a human development crisis that has yet to completely unfold.

The Global Disability Summit being held in Norway in February 2022 is an opportunity to address inequality and promote disability rights – and you have an important part to play in its success by signing our petition to governments and global organisations.

We are urgently calling for these global decision-makers to attend the summit, engage with people with disabilities and their representative organisations and make ambitious, properly financed commitments that will result in real change.

Words are not enough. Actions speak louder.
