The International Disability & Human Rights Network tells us in their website,

The right to be born equal in freedom and dignity, the right to personal integrity and self-determination: Human Rights are fundamental. They exist independently of laws passed in a society, and cannot be constrained by customs or beliefs of a particular community. We have human rights whether there are laws to uphold them or not. They are universal and indivisible.

Every day disabled people are denied their human rights.

When a person is excluded from employment because they are disabled, it is discrimination. If a child is excluded from education because they are disabled, their rights are being violated. If a disabled person is institutionalised against their will it is a violation of their fundamental human rights.

All DAA’s work is focussed on the human rights of disabled people. We do research, provide training, and give information and advice.

We believe that with out the inclusion of disabled people in the human rights agenda we will never have equality.

We believe that it is only through recognition that disability is socially constructed that we will achieve dignity.

We believe that celebrating our diversity will give us freedom.
