Each Freedom Drive, we present a set of demands to Members of the European Parliament (MEPs). On this occasion, and while celebrating our 30th Anniversary, we have set out our three key demands, which we wish to bring to the attention of the newly elected MEPs. These are:
- Mainstream disability in all policy areas and ensure that the future European Disability Strategy is fully aligned with the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and its general comments.
- End institutional care and promote access to community-based services and Personal Assistance for all those in need.
- Promote the freedom of movement for all by working towards a common European social framework.
For more details for each of them, please click here. Whether you are coming to the Freedom Drive or not, please send these to your MEPs, to make sure they promote the right to Independent Living in the coming 5 years.
