Our association has started a serious thing again: we are building an international People First network!
You may know that People First is an international network whose basic purpose is to support the independent living of people with disabilities.
People First can be found in so many countries around the world. Sometimes it is under a different name (e.g. Mensch Zuerst in Germany, or Speaking for Ourselves, United Together, Advocates Action in English-speaking countries), or just focusing on one target group, but the goal is the same.
As a People First association in Hungary that has been operating for many years, we have noticed that there is no central international People First organization. We feel it would be of great benefit if we could know about each other in the world, get to know each other’s activities and create connections and collaborations.
Through thorough research, we found many People First organizations around the world to whom we wrote invitation emails in English in January 2023. We’ve also created a Facebook group where People First organizations can get to know each other, keep in touch, build partnerships, even start joint projects.
If you know of People First organizations in your country, please recommend joining the Facebook group below. Thank you in advance!
We would like to point out that here only People First (or organizations with a different name, but of a similar nature) and their members can be members. We also expect an introduction from everyone, as this is the basis for building relationships.
