Community + Justice + Spirituality + Young Adults
"If we can create the political and legal mechanisms that will allow these barriers to come down, we can create the possibility for people to contribute their real talents, their real capacities, their real visions and their real skills to making our world a better place."
About Abilities and Disabilities
According to Disabled World Toward Tomorrow,
"A Disability is a lack of ability relative to a personal or group standard or norm. In reality there is often simply a spectrum of ability.
Disability may involve physical impairment, sensory impairment, cognitive or intellectual impairment, mental disorder (also known as psychiatric or psychosocial disability), or various types of chronic disease. A disability may occur during a person's lifetime or may be present from birth.
The World Health Organization estimates that there are as many as one billion persons with disabilities worldwide."
