On Human Rights day we stand with more than 100 other organisations signing a letter to party leaders because Human Rights are critical to all our lives. We know too many people with learning disabilities do not have their basic rights respected.
Alongside all our members we are working to change that so that everyone can live a good life as a citizen in their community.
The letter asks all party leaders to remember that “Many decisions will need to be made about what sort of country we want to be, going forward, and what relationship people have with those we place in power.”
Making human rights live and real in everyone’s life must be part of that deision making.
“This is people’s lives …. being wasted whilst we wait for change”
Jordan Smith, LDE self-advocate representative
