Mojo Mathers, Aotearoa’s first deaf MP, has one last chance to open the door for people with disabilities to fully participate in democracy. Democracy isn’t always democratic, and even the best governments struggle to be truly inclusive. Mojo Mathers knows from what it is to have to fight to enjoy the rights most people take for granted. With her Bill before parliament, Mojo must continue to fight in order to ensure a political future of equal representation for New Zealanders with disabilities. “I don’t want to talk about what I need to participate. I just want to get on with the job and hope, that it is never as hard for someone else” Mojo.
