People First New Zealand Members sometimes go to overseas conferences.

Members speak up at these events, on topics such as:

– self advocacy

– how People First New Zealand runs

– the importance of closing down institutions around the world and

– why people need to use respectful words.

People First New Zealand is an Associate Member of Inclusion International – an international organisation for people with learning disability and their families.

When New Zealand is looked at by the United Nations Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, People First New Zealand works together with the other Disabled People’s Organisations (DPOs) in New Zealand to write a Shadow Report.
