Inclusion Europe organised an event at the European Parliament 

together with 5 other NGOs. 

People from different organisations 

and some MEPs took part in the event. 

We talked about how to support people with disabilities 

so they can take part in politics. 

These were the main points of the event: 


For example, with information in easy-to-read 


for people with disabilities 

Self-advocate Dolores Pessarossi  

From our French member Nous aussi 

also took part in the event. 

Dolores had created some posters  

with easy-to-read information 

on how to vote. 

This is what Dolores said: 


“My name is Dolores Pessarossi. 

I represent the association ‘Nous aussi.’ 

The association ‘Nous Aussi’ brings together 

people with intellectual disabilities 

who want to make their voices heard. 

The European Union is important for me. 

People with intellectual disabilities in France 

have voted during the last European elections. 

But for people under guardianship 

it is still difficult to vote. 

For example, 

because some people cannot read. 

We need more accessible information for them. 

For example: 

We made a poster on voting in easy-to-read 

and it was a great success. 

With the right support,  

everyone can participate in politics.” 

Our work brings the voice of people with intellectual disabilities and their families where decisions about their future are made.

This has always been incredibly important. It is even more so with the Covid pandemic drastic impact on their rights and lives.

Being visible and vocal on issues directly affecting millions of people requires your support.
