Link 20 Network

Link20 is a global social movement led by a network of young activists, with and without disabilities. Our goal is to raise awareness on the right of people with disabilities to be fully included in our society and strengthen young activist’s leadership skills and influence in promoting inclusion and social justice.

Link20 members are young activists and advocates, with and without disabilities who care about social justice and inclusion for all.  Link20 creates a platform for social activism in the digital space. We do that by creating and promoting awareness campaigns, initiating and attending leadership and network events, and taking active roles in designing programs on a local, national and global level.

National Leadership Groups

Currently there are 3 active leaders groups in NY, DC and Boston. The groups consist of active individuals with and without disabilities who care about social justice and inclusion.

Latest advocacy work

Link 20 members are calling for equal medal pay for our Paralympic Athletes and equal media coverage to Paralympic Games. Our members issued and signed a letter to the United States Olympic Committee, urging them to act promptly and decisively to address this disparity. Our members also asked for an opportunity to start a conversation with the USOC regarding the current situation and potential solutions. In addition to the letter we produced 2 videos that call for equal medal pay and equal media coverage. Click here to see the videos.
