Daniel Csango

Budapest, Hungary

“I have been an activist since 2012; I started with various awareness-raising activities which resulted in being offered to teach at the ELTE University in Budapest. In 2017 I managed to mobilise the disabled peoples' community and organise a successful demonstration leading to the accessibility of Budapest's metro line renovation. This paved the way to becoming a community leader. After returning from my US fellowship, I started building a grassroots movement called Freekey that aims to implement the philosophy and services of the US founded Independent Living Movement, with its main focus being the Personal Assistance Service (PAS). “
