In 2004 Scope launched the Time to Get Equal campaign to banish disablism, which it defines as "discriminatory, oppressive or abusive behaviour arising from the belief that disabled people are inferior to others".
The campaign had three aims:
To raise awareness of the problems and barriers faced by disabled people in their everyday lives
To demand an improvement in the attitudes and actions that disabled people experience
To build a mass movement of disabled and non-disabled people campaigning and working for equality.

Scope (computer science)

In computer programming, a scope is the context within which a variable-name names its variable, or other identifier identifies what it identifies, or within which a declaration has effect. Various programming languages have various different scoping rules for different kinds of declarations and identifiers. Such scoping rules have a large effect on language semantics and, consequently, on the behavior and correctness of programs.

Scopes are frequently tied to other language constructs, but many languages also offer constructs specifically for controlling scope.
