#disabilitydisrupt

Launching

Disability Disarupt logo


It’s time to change the way disability is talked about and stereotyped.

 

Let’s disrupt the assumptions about what disability is and isn’t, what people with disabilities can and can’t do, how it should be spoken about, and who should do the talking.

 

It’s time to set our own rules!

 

Let’s disrupt the systems that oppress us, and the current thinking about how our world should be structured. Let’s disrupt who makes policy and how governments plan for disability.

 

We want to disrupt the way disability is talked about, who does the talking and what the disability community gets to speak about.

 

Join in.

 

Each month #disabilitydisrupt will focus on a different topic, but it’s up to you to after that. You can email, tweet, blog, post, or whatever works for you. Share an article, quote someone, have an opinion, paint a picture to share, send a photo. Just use #disabilitydisrupt to be part of the conversation.

 

We’ll start by talking education, and focus on desegregation.

 

Join in the conversation by using #Disabilitydisrupt
