We call on each of you to show leadership by committing your party to introducing accessibility legislation, including enforceable accessibility standards, in the next parliamentary term.
We urge you to recognise that increased accessibility presents one of the largest opportunities for social and economic development for all New Zealanders.
We want you to invest in the well-being of all New Zealanders by acting to ensure that jobs and workplaces are accessible to everyone, including 14,000 New Zealanders with disabilities who are ready and able to work, yet struggle to gain employment.
