Disability rights groups protest against Dehradun pool for discriminating against disabled adults


1
The Dehradun Disability Forum, an alliance of over 20 disability rights groups in Dehradun has come together in solidarity after 12 adults with autism were allegedly told by a local swimming academy to come for lessons at separate hours as other pool members were uncomfortable swimming with them.
You can swim but not with everyone else. That’s the blatantly discriminatory message sent out by a private swimming academy in Dehradun to 17 adults with autism who had signed up for swimming lessons at the academy.
