Disable Inequality Wants To Hear Your Stories
Make sure your voice is heard.
A new campaign called Disable Inequality is working towards making disability a defining issue in the 2016 general election.
Launched by the Disability Federation of Ireland (DFI), the campaign aims to make Ireland a fairer place to live and ensure disability is a priority in the new Programme for Government.
In the coming weeks, Disable Inequality will be collecting stories of inequality from people all over Ireland.
These personal accounts will be gathered as evidence to show political leaders that it is time to end discrimination against people living with a disability.
More than 600,000 people are living with a disability in Ireland. Two in three people in Ireland know or care for an immediate family member, a friend or a neighbour living with a disability.
Taking a bus, enrolling in school, finding a job, going to a gig, keeping warm: almost everything is more difficult and has more barriers if you are living with a disability.
To help make a change, visit the Disable Inequality website, share your story and contact your candidate.
