We’re people with disabilities. We’re 15% of the world.

People with disabilities are 15% of our world.

WeThe15 is the biggest ever human rights movement to end discrimination towards the world’s 1.2 billion persons with disabilities who represent 15% of the global population.

The WeThe15 movement campaigns to break down barriers.

Launched at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, WeThe15 has initiated change over the next decade by bringing together the biggest coalition ever of international organisations from the world of sport, human rights, policy, communications, business, arts and entertainment.

At a time when diversity and inclusion are hot topics, the 15% who have a disability want effective change to remove the inequality and inactivity. Like race, gender and sexual orientation, we want to have a movement all persons with disabilities can rally behind. A global movement that is publicly campaigning for disability visibility, inclusion and accessibility.

WeThe15 shines a light on 15% of the world’s population. It is building greater knowledge of the barriers and discrimination persons with disabilities face on a daily basis at all levels of society. By doing so we will break down these barriers so all persons with disabilities can fulfil their potential and be active and visible members of an inclusive society.
