Carlotta Besozzi has been director of the European Disability Forum – an organization advocating for rights for people with disabilities – since 2004. The EDF headquarters in Brussels is just blocks away from the headquarters of the European Union. The main purpose of the EDF is to ensure that people with disabilities have equal rights and are adequately represented in legislation enacted by the EU.
Besozzi is a native of Milan, where she was inspired to join the movement because she saw abuses and a lack of educational opportunities for people with disabilities in her homeland.
