DSCN5198 90028 August 2017 // All the 751 Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) will vote on 14 September whether the previously weak report of the Internal Market Committee (IMCO) on the European Accessibility Act (EAA), which clearly favours business over people, is adopted or not. Because they want every MEP to be aware of their demands, the European Disability Forum (EDF) created a campaign video, "We need a strong Accessibility Act!". The video also illustrates that the Accessibility Act is not just a piece of paper but affects real people.

NOMOREBS Iris 60023 August 2017 // One of our US members, the Hydrocephalus Association, is raising awareness on the profound effect that shunt treatment can have on the lives of persons with Hydrocephalus. Important milestones can be affected when a shunt fails, and people's lives can be at risk if shunt failure is not recognised or detected in time. Throughout a person's life, a shunt can fail multiple times. Brain surgery shouldn't be the only treatment for Hydrocephalus. The Hydrocephalus Association invites you to join their #NOMOREBS movement and to share, and respond to, their posts on Facebook and Twitter.
