Action for Society without Barrier: A Voice of Our Own

I would begin my presentation with some questions:

Who are you?

Surely, you will answer: I am a person with a disability.

If I ask you what is a disability? What will be your answer?

We can get many answers to this question but I want you to know what the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) tells about the definition of โ€œdisabilityโ€: โ€œdisability is an evolving concept and disability results from the interaction between persons with impairments and attitudinal and environmental barriersโ€.
