On the Passing of Judith Heumann

We join the international community in honoring the life and legacy of Judith “Judy” Heumann.  Judy was a trailblazer and extraordinary leader during her decades of human rights advocacy and public service.  She was frequently called the “mother of the disability rights movement” and was a mentor to countless young leaders and activists around the world.

To say Judy was instrumental in the disability rights movement is an understatement.  She embodied the collective fight for the rights of all people with disabilities throughout a multitude of roles and platforms — legal, political, and social.  Legislation — such as the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act — and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities would not exist without Judy’s leadership alongside her pioneering fellow advocates.

Her strength and wit catalyzed people’s understanding of disability rights as human rights, and she mobilized the world to advance accessibility and inclusion of persons with disabilities.  During her tenure at the Department as the first Special Advisor on International Disability Rights from 2010-2017, Judy traveled the world to meet with persons with disabilities, civil society organizations, and governments to share how everyone can use their voice to champion and advocate for disability rights.

For Judy, being recognized wasn’t about personal fame, it was about shining a light on the community of more than 1 billion people with disabilities around the world.  She forever changed the landscape of how persons with disabilities are seen, heard, and valued.  And she’d want us to remember that there is still so much to do.

Our deepest condolences to her family, and all who mourn her passing.  Her legacy lives on, and we will carry forward her important work.

People Authorized Scored Immediate Success at Its Inaugural Summit ‘InPeace 2023’

Encouraging Three New Countries to Join the Abraham Accords

People Authorized scored immediate success at its Summit "InPeace 2023", encouraging three new countries to join the Abraham Accords. InPeace 2023, which was held at Trump National Golf Club, Bedminster, NJ, March 10-12, 2023, was a symbolic recognition of President Donald J. Trump's role in the signage of the Historic Abraham Accords, with grassroots participants from the USA, Kenya, and Bangladesh, Russia, Moldova, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Iran, Poland, Italy, Lebanon, Egypt, Israel, China, Taiwan, India representing all three Abrahamic Religions: Muslim, Christian, and Jewish.

"The signage of the Abraham Accords could not have been achieved without true leaders who are not afraid to do the right thing, no matter how risky or unpopular it may be. It is our duty to bring international awareness to the importance of these Accords to ensure their survivability and sustainability at the grassroots level while also encouraging other countries to join the movement. I have personally received encouraging commitments from Libya, Kenya, and Bangladesh that they will promote the idea to their citizens and government leaders," said Max Morgan, Founder, People Authorized, adding, "The Abraham Accords did not establish a new norm, but rather aim to restore what was. For millennia, Muslims, Christians, and Jews coexisted and lived in peace and harmony across the Middle East and Africa as equitable citizens of their prospective countries. It's our obligation to correct the falsehood and manipulative narrative to ensure that the newer generations are taught respect, inclusion, and tolerance regardless of ethnicity, color, or religion because what unites us far exceeds what divides us."

Global icon and Advisory Board Chief, Government Liaison & Protocol, Dame Gloria Starr Kins's message of peace focused on the United Nations' Secretary General's LDC5 statement about sustainable development in the Least Developed Countries and its adaptation by People Authorized.

Technology icon and Advisory Board Member Jeffrey Sisk emphasized his involvement was driven by the conviction of the noble mission People Authorized is aiming to achieve. Oscan Sang, a business leader traveling especially from Kenya to attend InPeace 2023, said: "I am happy to suggest that Kenya MUST join the Abraham Accord, it's the most brilliant way of bringing societies and communities to live together in harmony. We have Muslim, Jewish, and Christian communities."

News Anchor, Rita Cosby stated: "To me, I have such incredible respect for all the countries that are involved in the Abraham Accord. To me, it's bridging not just a message of Peace, it's a message of Hope, it's a message of Prosperity, and also, I think it's a message of Courage."

InPeace 2023 successfully achieved the initial goal of bringing awareness to the importance of peace as the world is embarking on the possibility of yet another world war.
