Disability Rights Advocacy goes global

In March, Afrika Tikkun convened the 2nd annual Disability Rights Symposium. This event aims to bring together leaders from the fields of disability and human rights, and to reignite the sector with the vibrancy and the power of collaboration. A panel was convened by Harvard Professor Michael Stein who is a global actor for Disability Rights. At the same time, Dr Jean Elphick of Afrika Tikkun travelled to Harvard University in the USA to share our  work and achievements there. In March, Makhoaphe Letsie of Afrika Tikkun also travelled to the United Nations in Geneva Switzerland to make a report on the advocacy priorities agreed upon at the 2017 Disability Symposium to the UN Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
