Let's light up the world and end discrimination against persons with disabilities

IPC's new campaign will strive for greater awareness for 1.2 billion disabled people across the globe through WeThe15.
Let's light up the world and end discrimination against persons with disabilities
With 1.2 billion persons with disabilities living in the world as part of human diversity, WeThe15 is a movement which aspires to be the biggest ever human rights movement to represent and transform the lives of this 15% population of the world. This movement has aimed to put disability right at the heart of the inclusion agenda, alongside ethnicity and gender orientation and end discrimination towards persons with disabilities and act as a global movement publicly campaigning for disability visibility, accessibility, and inclusion.
In WeThe15 which is spearheaded by the IPC, we will bring together the biggest coalition ever of international organisations from the worlds of sport, human rights, policy, business, arts, and entertainment work with governments, businesses, and the public over the next decade to initiate change for the world’s largest marginalised group who make up 15% of the global population.
Here, we are going to raise awareness, change attitudes and create more opportunities, as well as improve accessibility by:
Putting persons with disabilities at the heart of the diversity and inclusion agenda.
Implementing a range of activities over the next decade to drive social inclusion for persons with disabilities.
Breaking down societal and systemic barriers that are preventing persons with disabilities from fulfilling their potential and being active members of society.
Ensuring greater awareness, visibility, and representation of persons with disabilities.
