Prince Harry's Invictus Games Foundation is part of the newly launched "WeThe15" campaign
On 19 August 2021, more than 125 landmarks around the World in 30 countries will light up purple, the international colour for disability, to celebrate the Launch of the disability campaign WeThe15. Multiple international organizations, including Prince Harry's Invictus Games Foundation are coming together for a decade-long campaign hoping to transform the lives of the 15% of world's population who live with disabilities.
The campaign is being led by International Paralympic Committee, International Disability Alliance, UN Human Rights, UNESCO, UNAOC amongst others, and is aspiring to be the biggest ever human rights movement to represent the world’s 1.2 billion persons with disabilities.
WeThe15 aims to end discrimination towards persons with disabilities and act as a global movement publicly campaigning for disability visibility, accessibility, and inclusion.
The launch of the campaign is timed to coincide with the start of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games. WeThe15 aim to have at least one major international sporting event for persons with disabilities to showcase WeThe15 each year between now and 2030.
