One of Sightsavers’ partners, Peter Fremlin, curator of the Disability Debrief, recently delivered a thought-provoking talk during our lunchtime speaker series.
The Disability Debrief is an engaging, specialist guide to disability news from around the world. Peter describes himself as a disabled person who freelances for “international organisations including the United Nations agencies, to try to make the world a better place for disabled people”.
Recent editions of the debrief have covered topics ranging from disability-inclusive climate justice to the political protests taking place by disabled people in Peru.
Following the lunchtime talk, I interviewed Peter to learn more about his life and work on the Debrief. During our chat, I asked him about the future topics he’d like to cover and how we can all work together to help reduce the stigma around disability.
