Why contribution is an issue
An individual’s identity is closely linked to their contribution – the value that they can add to the world.
Everyone needs a story to tell about what they did with their day and the difference it made for them and those around them.
This issue is not restricted to contribution in the form of employment – although the ability to do so is an important issue in the lives of many of our community members.
Members of the CP community have talents and contributions to make in the areas of art, science, education, and politics. As poets or teachers. As public speakers or engineers. As painters or parents. The kind of contributions that don’t just have a lasting impact in the life of a person with CP, but that add profound value to our society.
We must make a commitment to ensure that all people with CP are able to make their contribution. Because it is a matter of personal justice. Because it is a matter of ensuring our community receives the important benefit of that contribution.
