CEPPS Youth in Focus: International Day for Persons with Disabilities


To mark International Day for Persons with Disabilities, join CEPPS as youth activists from Nepal, Guyana, Georgia, Tunisia, and Ethiopia discuss the issues facing young people with disabilities’ civic and political participation, as well as highlight the innovative work taking place to empower youth with disabilities in their respective countries.

This event will raise awareness of both the challenges facing young persons with disabilities in fully and meaningfully exercising their civic and political rights, as well as the critical work being done by youth leaders and civil society organizations globally to empower youth with disabilities and help build their political power.
