July 15, 2009, Washington, DC: The International Criminal Court (ICC) recently held a workshop with 50 leaders representing people with disabilities in northeastern Uganda.
The meeting marked the beginning of an ICC effort to improve outreach to people with disabilities in the communities most affected by the conflict in northern Uganda. This is the first time the court is broadening its outreach efforts to include people with disabilities in order to strengthen its information-sharing process.
The training was initiated after an advocacy meeting that Mendi Njonjo, AP’s Director of Africa Programs and John Francis Onyango, coutnry coordinator for Survivor Corps in Uganda, held with ICC officials earlier this year.
You can read more about the training on the ICC website.
