YHD, LJUBLJANA: The members of the association are handicapped people who believe in and act by the principles of the independent living. We are united in our diversity, in order to achieve our goals eaiser. We do not fall for the "healthy life" rhetoric and custody and care logic. We avoid patronizing practices of charity and pity, and most of all, we don't allow for somebody to assume the right or feel entitled to speak on our behalf, instead of us and our name.


We understand handicap as a social status, assigned to anyone, who in a certain moment or in a certain society falls out olf existing definitions and accepted norms. A handicapped person can find him or herself in social relations, which push him or her into and keep him or her in a deprivileged position. Therefore, one must surpass such relations.
