Blackpool Tower shines Purple tonight, bearing a purple heart tribute 💜
Why is it purple? Well, today is International Day of Persons with Disabilities.
🟣 #PurpleLightUp to raise awareness of disability rights 🟣
Persons with disabilities could be your parent, your colleague, your best friend, your child. Give them a chance!
Article 15 of the European Social Charter is based on a vision of equal citizenship for persons with disabilities conferring on them a right to independence, social integration and participation in the life of the community.
It applies to all persons with disabilities regardless of the nature and origin of their disability, of their age and of their nationality. Non-discrimination and equal treatment must be guaranteed in law and in practice.
Thank you Blackpool Tower!!
