This represents a great step for our Institute, after we presented evidence and experiences in this regard in the Communications and Human Rights commissions of the Constitutional Convention.

The project of the new Constitution will be in Easy-to-Read!

This will allow real accessibility for all people with comprehension difficulties: people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, older people with cognitive impairment, non-native Spanish speakers, among others.

At MICARE we are very happy for this achievement after we presented on this issue at the Constitutional Convention on August 18 with our alternate director Marcela Tenorio and our spokesperson Ricardo Pizarro.

“Once the draft Constitution has been drawn up, an edition that complies with the international standard for Easy-to-Read must be prepared, in Braille format, in Spanish, in English and in the languages of the pre-existing peoples and nations that is possible, multi-format and maximum diffusion”.

This is excellent news for inclusion and accessibility in the way of a new Constitution for Chile!
