Celebrate International Day of Disabled People with us and Manchester Libraries at Manchester Central Library.

Come and celebrate with the Young Creatives from Greater Manchester Coalition of Disabled People and Manchester City Council.

There will be a panel discussion, “State of the Disabled Nation” with audience questions. As the Cost of Living crisis bites and austerity deepens, we will talk about the realities of disabled people’s lives and the issues revealed by the recent GM Big Disability Survey, and how we take action to defend and advance our Rights.

This full program will also include an activism wall workshop, performances from disabled artists, and much more.
