We are actively campaigning to address racial and intersectional inequality of Black Disabled people within ALLFIE’s work and to encourage other DPOs/movements to achieve the common aim for race and intersectional equality.

 

 

ALLFIE’s campaign stands in solidarity with #BlackLivesMatter movement to condemn all forms of violence, abuse, injustice and demand everyone has a right to be respected and free from discrimination.

“Children need to be valued and the education system needs to be inclusive of all and we have seen some changes that have happened to disabled people and disabled children, but not for black disabled children” (Saádia Neilson)

Current campaign work

  • ALLFIE has produced a video series Voices of Disabled Black Campaigners to recognise the voices and contributions of Disabled Black People to our campaign for human rights.
  • ALLFIE has set up pressure group Disabled Black Lives Matter (DBLM) to promote the advancement of race and intersectional equality within our work, and speak about the absences of experiences of Black Disabled People within Disability Rights and other movements. The group represents Black Disabled people and Disabled people of colour from an intergenerational and intersectional background.
