The Purple Lights campaign sees Government buildings local and national, major companies, and civic and educational institutions all turning purple to celebrate the UN International Day of Persons with Disabilities on December 3rd.
The Purple Lights founder, disability activist, Gary Kearney says, “This campaign is something very close to my heart. It’s a day of celebration and awareness where we shine a light on disability. I am really looking forward to seeing this year’s engagement with the campaign. I have no doubt that we will have a wonderful response to the day.”
You can follow the campaign on its hashtag #PurpleLights22 and start readying your purple lights! Disability Federation of Ireland is very much aware of the high costs of energy this year so please feel free to look at alternative ways of turning purple on Dec 3rd if lighting up is not possible.
So why not get your colleagues, groups and supporters involved on the day and show your support for the 650,000 people living with a disability in Ireland.
