Defence and advocacy of people with disabilities’ rights
TOGETHER, WE CAN CHANGE THINGS!
We endorse and defend the first article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as the principle of equality, the right to respect and dignity for all, regardless of their situation. We speak out against systemic discrimination based on disability.
The accessibility of all buildings receiving the public, particularly the clinics of general practitioners or other specialists, shelters for women victims of violence, polling stations for each election, a reform of the Quebec Construction Code as well as the withdrawal of the exemptions linked to the accessibility obligations of the Régie du Bâtiment du Québec.
Our Global Refusal, our revolutionary manifesto
We are all from the 20th and 21st century. We were born here and elsewhere. We speak thousands of languages. We are rich and poor. Our loves are celebrated and taboo. We have multiple identities. Our voices are plural. We live in a land today called Quebec and we show solidarity beyond all borders. We are visible and invisible. Many of us carry the stigma of the disabled because of the difference in our bodies and minds compared to the standards often perceived as natural, ideal and imperative.
We fight so that our visible and often invisible differences are recognized and valued in order to live without the breathless and oppressive task.
