Since April, the National Disability Agency called for participation in the “Federal Consultation towards a New Disability Law”, which will take place between March 21 and May 31, inclusive, “for all those interested in providing contributions that nurture the debate towards the project that replaces Law 22,431” In these public hearings, each participant chooses a topic on which to give their opinion. The topics are: education – work – health – social protection – political participation – accessibility autonomous and independent life – another topic.
In Córdoba, the hearings will be held on May 5 and 6, at the fairgrounds of the city’s Convention Center. Fernando Galarraga, Executive Director of the National Agency for Disability, welcomed this initiative to collect contributions from all sectors of society to achieve a law that includes everyone.
