Disability Rights are Civil Rights

As disAbility Connections reflects on the current social climate, we remember that the Independent Living Movement owes much to the civil rights movement.  Persons with disabilities took inspiration from the brave individuals of the civil rights movement who fought for their rights in society and recognized in themselves the strength to work for equal treatment.    disAbility Connections affirms it will continue to serve the community as an organization striving to advance the independence, productivity and full inclusion of all who live with disabilities.  disAbility Connections will never treat someone poorly because of who they are and will continue to work for justice for all.

The partnership with U of M and disAbility Connections has provided a great video of the importance of accessibility and the impact it has on people.  Please watch the video and click on the link below to read the article that goes with it.

How different would the story have been if Victor Frankenstein and the villagers had reacted to the “creature” not with fear and violence, but with “yes and” and “got your back”?

Watch Jim Ansaldo from the Indiana Institute On Disability at Indiana University, lead this participatory, thoughtful, and fun session. They used improv-- the art of making things up on the spot -- to explore these ideas and co-create new stories of disability that represent our highest aspirations.

Get ready to follow along in this active and fun presentation, focused around how we can change the discourse about disability.
