Community education about the rights of the blind
The community education strategy will focus on creating awareness about the fundamental rights and freedoms of the blind (Beverly, 2014). Blind persons just like others individuals are entitled to equal and full access to social services that are available to other members of the general public. Any action to alienate them contradicts the principles of fairness, human right law, international relation law, the disability act and other existing law and statues aimed at elevating the marginalized persons of the community (Beverly, 2014). Therefore, it is important for every community stakeholder to effectively understand that the fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals are inherent and not granted by the state. It is the Duty of the state to protect the rights of the disabilities since they are God given (Obar e t al., 2012). Hence it is not a favor from any community stakeholder including the tax driver to grant the disabled persons their rights since they are God given.
The advocacy campaign will aim at creating general an awareness of the various the principles enshrined in the disabilities act, the human rights law and international law which aim at protecting the rights of the disabled in various. Much emphasis in this campaign will focus on creating awareness of the Disability discrimination act that aims at creating equality for all disabled persons in different arenas. As per the act it illegal to discriminate any disabled person in the provision of goods and services, education and employment (Samuel, 2009). Therefore to strengthen the broader human rights agenda for the blind or disabled individuals in the community setting there will be various advocacy campaign platforms on radios, deletions, newpapers, magizines and other community engagement platforms to ensure that the blind people are provided equal assistance just like other society members (Eaton, 2010). Further all players in the human rights and equal opportunity commission will be brought on board to ensure that the blind persons enjoy social services like transportation without any form of marginalization (Eaton, 2010). Important to note is that the denial of blind person to have access to transportation services because is using a dog guide is an act of rascality tainted with high levels of ignorance about the fundamental rights and freedoms of the blind. Therefore it is basing on this background that all community engagement platforms at all levels will be helped to inform the general public including the tax drivers about the rights of the disabled(Eaton, 2010). Of all the other strategies available community education is the most effectives. Other strategies include the following;
Political actions will also be undertaken to influence policy makers to make amendments in the existing legislations governing the disabled where the blind are also inclusive. This will involve bringing together all the relevant stakeholders both in Government and Government sector. Consensus building strategies will also be undertaken at all levels aimed at encouraging policy actors to come up with strategies that will promote an environment that sees the blind as part and partial of society (Volodymyr, 2016). Collaborations will be promoted at all levels through identification of allies. This will involve cooperating with other people involved in the fight against of exclusion of the disabled. It should be realized that in a society there may exist various human rights defenders agitating for particular issues for specific reasons. Therefore people with the same strategies will collaborate together to avoid competition that is unproductive and at the sometime eliminate wasteful efforts duplication. In promoting collaboration for the common goal, differences among various sects will be recognized, actions and respective roles. There will be planning together and continuous information and communication among all the human rights groups involved (Obar e t al., 2012).
Under legal actions, there will be a serious and thorough review of all the existing laws and legislations about the rights of the blind when it comes to enjoying social services like public transport. There will be an inquiry on the current loopholes on the existing legislation that are being utilized by specific individuals to violate the rights of the disabled persons. Further, individuals found to have been involved in any form of impunity against the blind persons especially in their efforts to enjoy public transportation will be arrested, apprehended, convicted with a strong arm of the law . This will help in promoting the fundamental rights and freedoms of the blind (Volodymyr, 2014).
