I have a disability and I have rights

2 December 2016
Area of action: All areas of action
Grounds of discrimination: Disability

10 years: that's how long the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities has existed. On December 3, Unia is launching a campaign by and for persons with disabilities. The message? Defend your rights. 

Many people with disabilities are not aware of their human rights. Through a campaign video, posters and an awareness raising action, we want to change that. The action will be held on December 3 – the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. Go to the campaign page.

Unia calls for urgent action to fight structural discrimination against people of African origin

It is in the areas of employment, housing and education that the discriminations and inequalities suffered by this group are most keenly felt. "The contrast between their high level of education and their low level of employment is striking," says Els Keytsman and Patrick Charlier, Directors of Unia.
