On the occasion of Disability Week, Plena Inclusion joins the rest of the disability movement to remember the importance of the inclusion of people with disabilities.
During the month of December, a campaign will be disseminated on social networks campaign which, under the slogan ‘Milestones and Challenges’, highlights 5 legislative and associative achievements together with 5 pending demands that refer to the fundamental rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Maribel Cáceres, vice-president of Plena Inclusion and one of the leaders of the State Platform of Representatives of People with Intellectual Disabilities explains the meaning of this action: “we want to value what has been achieved. Spain has come a long way in recent years as a society in terms of inclusion. But we are not satisfied. There is still a long way to go for full inclusion”.

In addition, on 3 December, a person with a disability representing Plena Inclusion CV took part in the reading of the manifesto, which called for the term “handicapped” to be changed to “person with a disability” in the Spanish Constitution.
