Wheelchair users are generally expected to make way for people who are walking. The street is “their space”- we’re just taking it up. We’re supposed to wait, move aside and separate from the people we’re with for the convenience of others.

Growing up my mother taught me to apologize for taking up any type of space with my chair and to always be out of the way. As a result, I still automatically go to a corner in a crowded room. I have learned to stop apologizing for the space I take up just like everyone else 🤷🏻‍♀️

This is so important. Today I ran an event for a book on disability, and though I was trying to make the space as accessible as possible, I'd totally overlooked the fact that wheelchair users couldn't easily reach things on the snack table. These "little" things add up.

Anyone who watches that show about dating a quadriplegic is obligated to read my wife's less-sensationalized story about the same topic. This new law is being added to the ADA, pass it on

The maximum SSI benefit per month is $771. That's $9252 a year. (~$4.45 an hour) Federal minimum wage is $7.25. Working full-time is $15,080 a year. The government expects people to live on less than minimum wage. This has to change.

Today, I am proud to accept the role of Associate Artist at Shakespeare’s Globe and to become part of the Shakespeare's Globe family.  I look forward to contributing to the multi-layered, diverse and inclusive work that the Globe has planned.

Some are thinking about a white student who had his Harvard admissions rescinded bc he used racial slurs. I am thinking about the black students who excelled in an environment w/ classmates who used racist slurs yet were never admitted to Harvard in the 1st place.

A1. Disability rights are civil rights. Advocacy is a powerful way to have a voice and improve the laws, policies and systems that affect our disabled community.

I had to be lifted off my flight by the airline cabin crew because the assistance staff couldn't find an aisle chair ANYWHERE in Terminal 5. 3rd time this has happened this year. Do we need to set up a Go Fund Me to buy additional aisle chairs for a multi million pound company?

I really wish this kind of catastrophic, miracle-oriented, outdated reporting would come to an end. The most recent research suggests that 80% of spinal cord injury survivors can have biological children.
