National Centre for Promotion of Employment for Disabled People

NCPEDP partners with disabled activists and experts across the country, through its National Disability Network (NDN) and The National Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (NCRPD), in order to achieve the goal of independence, integration, and civil rights for all people with disabilities. To achieve this goal, NCPEDP uses a “pitchfork” strategy of advocacy, including:

  • Legislative: Working with our representatives to create or enforce laws that will improve the lives of people with disabilities.
  • Legal: Employing the legal process, when the rights of people with disabilities have been violated.
  • Media: Educating the public about disability rights through print, electronic, and social media, and direct outreach.
  • Administrative: Training leaders in the disability rights movement to serve in leadership roles in the government, businesses, and organizations to help influence those establishments and ensure that accessibility and disability rights are engrained in entities throughout our community.
