A group of organizations spearheaded by the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) and International Disability Alliance(IDA) have launched the WeThe15 campaign ahead of the Paralympic Games this summer to highlight the 15 percent of people worldwide— 1.2 billion — who are disabled and to initiate better inclusion over the next decade. “WeThe15 aims to end discrimination towards persons with disabilities and act as a global movement publicly campaigning for disability visibility, accessibility, and inclusion,” reads a press release on the IPC website.
