UN Messenger of Peace Stevie Wonder Speaks Up for Children with Disabilities

This year’s historic high level meeting on disabilities at the UN General Assembly on September 23rd demanded international action to invest in children with disabilities and to include people with disabilities in the global development agenda. The UN meeting attracted diverse participants: those with and without disabilities.

 

Stevie Wonder made a plea for technology to be made available to all people with disabilities: “I am really going to push everyone to join our world of inclusion,” said Mr. Wonder who is a UN Messenger of Peace focusing on Persons with Disabilities. “The more people who are doing things that make a difference and are part of this world of inclusion, the smaller the world gets of people who are not committed and ultimately we will end up with a world of inclusion."
