Political empowerment of people with disabilities in Laayoune

ADAPH, a local disability rights group, and the Moroccan Coalition for the promotion of disability rights held a workshop on the political empowerment and participation of people with disabilities in Laayoune on Saturday 15 August 2015, with the support of CNDH’s regional human rights commission in Laayoune. The activity was also supported by Handicap International, the National Democratic Institute and the Commune of Foum El Oued in Laayoune.

The workshop, said the organizers, aimed at promoting and advocating for effective political participation of people with disabilities and inciting political parties to include disability rights in the heart of their agendas and programs.

In addition to statements and remarks on the political empowerment and effective participation of people with disabilities in the political life, the workshop shed light on the preliminary conclusions and outcome of the meetings held by the ADAPH with its partners, including the Regional Human Rights Commission of Laayoune-Smara, political parties, local authorities, disability rights organizations, etc. on its political empowerment of people with disabilities project.

This project aims at raising political awareness of persons with disabilities, advocating for their effective participation in managing local affairs, increasing their political presence within political parties, and encouraging these parties to put disability and disability rights at the heart of political program priorities.
