The Freedom Drive is one of the key campaigns of the European Network on Independent Living (ENIL).
This year is the 30th birthday of ENIL and a small delegation from CILNI will be attending the Freedom Drive to represent disabled people in Northern Ireland. We would be delighted if other people, committed to the principles of the independent living movement, would like to join our delegation in travelling to Brussels.
The Freedom Drive is a lobbying campaign ran by the European Network on Independent Living (ENIL). Since 2003 disabled people, activists and supporters of Independent Living movement from Europe gather to campaign, lobby and promote the right to Independent Living, the right to Personal Assistance, ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities and Portability of Personal Assistance. From 2015, the Freedom Drive has been held in Brussels.
