Resource listing - Convention on People With Disabilities

Disabled Peoples' International www.dpi.org adopted a Disability Promotion, Community Awareness, Media Reporting, Fund Raising, Marketing & Communication strategies Policy Statement

Disabled Peoples' International (DPI) is a human rights organization and the peak international cross disability organization of people with disability. This Policy Statement reflects our concern that fundraising, community education, awareness campaigns, media reporting, health campaigns, marketing & communications strategies around the world, have not always depicted people with disability in a manner that is positive, dignified and respectful. Too often, these practices have focused on the negative impact in people's lives, rather than the restrictive environmental and social barriers people face.
