ABC Ramp Up
provides the online mainstream platform for people with disability to voice their concerns, struggles and realities, especially at a time when Government has indicated it is moving ahead with measures which will negatively impact on many people with disability. Now that the dedicated role of Disability Discrimination Commissioner at the Australian Human Rights Commission
is to be removed, more than ever people with disability need this independent mainstream voice.
With over 15,000 signatures, join us for a concerted push to reach 20,000 signatures
. This will send a very strong message to the ABC Managing Director, Mark Scott and the Government to reconsider defunding the online disability website, ABC Ramp Up
at the end of June 2014.
Please share and promote the petition as far and wide as you can. Your networks are vital in this push for the voice of people with disability to be heard.
