  • The International Day of Disabled Persons aims to promote an understanding of disability issues and mobilize support for the dignity, rights and well-being of persons with disabilities. (
  • The voice of persons with disabilities is seldom heard in the mainstream media. (
  • When persons with disabilities are portrayed, they are either stereotyped or presented as an inspiration for "overcoming" a disability. (
  • Observance of the Day should therefore be used to offer an opportunity for persons with disabilities to speak for themselves. (
  • The theme of the Day is based on the goal of full participation and equality of persons with disabilities in social life and development, established by the World Programme of Action concerning Disabled Persons, adopted by the General Assembly in 1982. (
  • Completing ten years, the Standard Rules on the Equalization of Opportunities for Persons with Disabilities represent a strong moral and political commitment of Governments to take action to attain equalization of opportunities for persons with disabilities. (
  • Standard Rule 1 calls for States to act to raise awareness in society about persons with disabilities, their rights, their needs, their potential and their contribution. (
  • Awareness and information about the situation of persons with disabilities is critical if full participation and equality are to be achieved. (
  • The commission was guided in its work by the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) . (
  • Shane Kanady added that accessibility and usability are both critical to ensure persons with disabilities can take full advantage of the potential technology offers. (
