How Can We End Stigma And Abuse Against People With Disabilities
Shantha Rau Barriga shares her first-hand experiences documenting some of the worst human rights crimes: the shackling and deliberate isolation of people with disabilities. “If I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes, I would not believe such inhumanity is possible.” By sharing the stories of people hidden away and pressuring policymakers to act, we’re starting to change people’s lives. Shantha calls each of us to work together and #BreakTheChains of stigma and violence - and include people with disabilities in our communities.
