LAWS IN BEHALF OF THE RIGHTS OF OUR HANDICAP CITIZENS
Juan Carlos Rosas. Guanajuato, Gto.- Local chamber representatives put themselves to work and passed their ‘Guanajuato State Handicap Law of rights’.
According to chamber representative Luxana Padilla this law is intended to give equal right of opportunities. So there are no excuses to not allow the handicap to receive a good education, find a good job or to actively participate in the community, among other things.
How? Well, this law is also intended to create a government institution for the handicap, which will scrutinize the public policies structure in terms of handicap rights and will observe authorities and institutions in charge.
It is really cool that laws can work that way, benefiting the handicap, although they have shown to be an example for those who are not,
But laws and policies are not enough, we also need a civil education all the way from childhood.
