Stevie Wonder is still breaking records and setting positive trends! At a meeting with the United Nations’ World Intellectual Property Organisation the 25 time Grammy award-winning singer recently spoke out in support of a campaign to translate books for blind readers. Stevie urged the group to help transition significant history and science books into a format accessible for visually impaired people.

Mr. Wonder also called for a trade of copyrighted books to be translated into Braille and other readable formats. Stevie said:

“What I would like to do today is launch what I call the ‘Declaration of freedom for people with disabilities’, it’s a call to action, a plan that will empower the independence of people with disabilities by providing them with the tools to learn and grow.”

He then went on teasingly to add:

“Please work it out. Or I’ll have to write a song about what you didn’t do.”

I suggest y’all get RIGHT on it cause we ALL know the power of Stevie’s voice!
