The disability rights program focuses on assisting mentally challenged and severely handicapped people. The aim of the program is to help them to live their life as an equal citizen and as a recognized member of their community. The most important goal is to eliminate totalitarian mass institutions and, in parallel, to develop programs in the community that promote integration; to reform the guardian system, that is, to advocate supported decision-making; to fight legislation that attempts to restrict the voting rights and to promote the right to education for children with mental disabilities.
