International Day of Persons with Disabilities (December 3) focuses on access and empowerment for people of all abilities. This year’s commemoration aims to bring attention to the many barriers faced by persons living with disabilities, worldwide.These people experience discrimination for transportation, employment and education, as well as social and political participation.UNITED NATIONS SECRETARY GENERALWe mark this year’s International Day of Persons with Disabilities in the wake of the adoption of the ambitious 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.  This global blueprint for action summons us to “leave no one behind”.Building a sustainable, inclusive world for all requires the full engagement of people of all abilities. The 2030 Agenda includes many issues of concern to persons with disabilities and we must work together to transform these commitments into action.Earlier this year, the United Nations Third World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction,Cheap Authentic Jerseys, recognised the key role people with disabilities can play in promoting a more universally accessible approach in disaster preparedness and response. Next year, the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development (HABITAT III) will discuss a new urban development agenda to make our cities inclusive, accessible and sustainable.

The ILO and other international organizations in Geneva have come together to join persons with disabilities in declaring this day A Day for All.A Day for All invites us to recognize the contributions of disabled persons to our workplaces, our families,Cheap Hockey Jerseys, our schools and our communities. It also asks us to reaffirm our commitment to welcoming and celebrating disability as part of human diversity.Disability is a fundamental expression of human diversity.

And secondly,Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping, as persons of disability come from all countries, economic backgrounds and ethnicities,Cheap Stitched MLB Jerseys, they are arguably the most diverse of all minority groups.On this day we are reminded that there are still millions of women and men with disabilities who face exclusion from mainstream social, economic and political life. Yet we know from experience that when attitudinal and physical barriers are removed, people with disabilities can be as productive and reliable as those without disabilities.Many workers’ and employers’ organizations have long taken a pioneering stand in championing the interests of disabled workers, and recently at the ILO 11 major international companies became the first signatories of the new ILO Global Business and Disability Network Charter. The Charter expresses their commitment to promoting and including persons with disabilities throughout their operations worldwide. It has a broad remit: be it from making the company premises and staff communications progressively more accessible to all employees with disabilities, to combating stigma and stereotypes faced by persons with disabilities.While much has been achieved over the past years and persons with disabilities have gained recognition of their rights by countries around the globe, and with them their rightful place in society, there is also much work ahead. A majority of disabled persons still face barriers to enjoying decent work and a better life.Today, we renew our commitment to achieving full and equal rights and participation in society for all women and men with disabilities. Working together, we can break down the barriers to decent work, so that every day will be A Day for All.
