The largest minority group in the world are people living with disability. One-seventh of the people on the planet have a disability. Three in seven people are connected to someone living with a disability, which means that the disability community comprises four-sevenths of the world’s population. This community by definition highlights the very fabric of diversity representing every ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation and socio-economic stripe. People with disabilities have been instrumental in the growth of freedom and the birth of democracy. Now more than ever, this community has the power to bridge our divides and bring us together.
Join us for a discussion with Ashoka Fellows to explore how we can mobilize the political, moral, economic, cultural and imaginative power of Ashoka disability Fellows to grow and unify the disability movement as the backbone to shape the world that we need in the 21st century.
