We are all disabled is a meeting with many voices that wants to unhinge fears, mistrust, fill gaps to create an inclusive and synergic environment. We are committed to a social context in which people with disabilities can express themselves and move freely without hindrances to their independence and abilities. This event, which has now become an annual event, aims to create, through the different testimonies and skills, a greater awareness, and is devoted to identify new challenges, provide resources and call to action for a shared path that allows people with disabilities to live a full and barrier-free life.
We look forward to seeing you there and please extend the invitation to your contacts interested in participating.
