The first ever Disabled People’s Parliament is set to take place on International Day of Disabled People, tomorrow Friday 3 December. Hosted by the Speaker of the Northern Ireland Assembly, Alex Maskey MLA, the event will begin at 2.00pm in the Assembly Chamber in Parliament Buildings.

The event has been organised in conjunction with a range of disability rights groups and organisations including Disability Action and My Way Access who will speak at the event.

During the event, participants will be calling for ‘The United Nations Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities’ to be fully incorporated in legislation in Northern Ireland. They will use personal stories to highlight the importance of adopting the Convention here and outlining what difference it will make to their lives.
