National Ethnic Disability Alliance – 2017 NEDA Medal
The National Ethnic Disability Alliance (NEDA) as a part of its continued celebration of the 2017 International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is proud to announce the recipients of this year’s NEDA Medal. Since 2015 NEDA has presented the “NEDA Medal” to individuals who champion the rights and lives of CaLD people living with disability.
This is a prestigious award, given to those people who are actively working to break down barriers and stereotypes that people with disability face every day with special regard given to the nexus of disability, language, culture and ethnicity. NEDA wishes to shine a light on these people, pay tribute to them and their support of the work of NEDA, and for propagating the human rights of CaLD people living with disability.
