Advocacy for People with Disabilities
An Action of the Lutheran World Federation, July 20–27, 2010, Public Statement XIII
True fellowship, both in society and church, consists of all kinds of people. This is not only a matter of theology, but also human rights.
The Lutheran World Federation renews its commitment to the cooperation with the World Council of Churches and the Ecumenical Disabilities Advocates Network (EDAN) to strengthen advocacy for the inclusion, participation and involvement of persons with disabilities in spiritual, social and development life, both in the church and society.
