We are Germany

Verena Bentele, The Federal Government Commissioner for Matters relating to Disabled Persons

Statement for the DW-campaign "We are Germany"

People with disabilities have the right to personal relationships, to work, to take part in sports, go to the cinema or theater - just like anyone else. They don’t want to be defined solely by their disability.
A society is truly diverse and tolerant when all that has become par for the course and it doesn’t create obstacles. That should be our common goal: an inclusive, colorful society that enables everyone to participate in everything – regardless of race, gender, appearance, age, religion or whether they have a disability or not.
