Soufiane El Amrani had a presentation during

the Hear our Voices! conference.

 

The speech was a report about

the work of self-advocacy groups

and their work all around Europe

Self-advocates from all over Europe

got together in their own countries

and organised several events to talk

about how was it for them to go

through the COVID-19 situation.

In Ireland a self-advocate is now

a communication and information manager.

 

In Spain a self-advocate was elected

as Vice-President in one of our members.

 

Also in Ireland self-advocates challenged

the government on the way they decide

to spend their money.

In Spain a National Platform of Self-Advocates

was launched with more than 500 people attending.

 

EPSA chair Laszlo challenged the way

people with disabilities are discriminated

against when it comes to exercise the right to vote.

We had several events in 9 countries,

with more than 300 participants.

 

We had events in Portugal, Romania,

Ireland, Hungary, Czechia, Austria,

Croatia, Moldova, and Spain.

 

We also had our Spanish member talking

at our Directors meeting.

 

They talked about

how is this important to give voice

to self-advocates.

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.
