Where do we go from here? Everywhere.
Sometimes ideas like disability pride and disability inclusion can seem pretty theoretical, not to mention the difference between equality and equity. Here’s where you can equip yourself with explanations, illustrations, and personal stories to get a better grasp on this stuff.
If you’d like to provide financial assistance, or even volunteer time, to organizations working to further disability justice, we thank and applaud you. While we’re not able to endorse specific groups, due to the nature of our group, we encourage you to do a web search for terms like “disability equity,” “disability pride,” “inclusion for people with disabilities” or whatever idea you’re most moved to support. And give generously, if you can!
