When we talk about the fight for equality, who do you think of?

The rebels, the freedom fighters, revolutionaries, free thinkers.

They fought to make our society more equal, more fair, more democratic.

They refused to be invisible, would not go unheard and stood beside those who could not win alone.

Each generation adds a voice to the strength of the movement, ensuring that it lives on.

But inequality remains across society, across generations, across the world.

One in 5 of us in the UK is disabled.

14 million people facing prejudice and negative attitudes every single day.

If we join our voices together we can change this.

We can all leave the life that we choose free from discrimination.

Every one of us can make a difference.

Will you be counted with us?

Attitudes, work, public transport, care and support and access to digital technology all play a part.
