Renew Europe’s commitments to ensure the rights of persons with disabilities
Around 20% of the population of the European Union has some kind of disability. People with disabilities face more barriers, challenges and discrimination in their daily lives. In addition to this, the COVID-19 pandemic and the measures applied by the Member States have had a disproportionate effect on people with disabilities. Therefore, the Renew Europe Group in the European Parliament has undertaken strong commitments to ensure the rights of people with disabilities and calls for concrete steps towards creating an inclusive European society based on equality and full accessibility for everyone.
