In two videos, Robert Martin gets behind Disability Pride Week in New Zealand and calls for everyone to do the same.
Robert is a committee member of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and believes it is really important for people to have pride in their own disability, and for other people to see that pride too.
In this second video Robert says it is important to have Disability Pride because no one can give it to you. It is something you can give yourself. Robert also says it is important to join DPOs like DPA, Balance NZ and People First to become friends with other people with disabilities. It is possible to have a bearing in making changes in our society.
