Inclusion of the Most Marginalized

The Disability Rights Fund team and partners travelled to the UN Headquarters to speak at the 9th session of the Conference of States Parties (COSP) to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).

From June 14 to 16, 2016, our team advocated for the inclusion and rights of marginalized voices within the disability movement.
