It really baffles me that I have to explain to people why they should care about other people in 2019. Everyone should get dignity. Everyone should get needs met. It doesn't mean you get less. This isn't pie.

I think that the disability community needs to develop a lot more tolerance for constructive conflict and a lot less tolerance for deference to charismatic leaders.

None of the 2020 Presidential Candidates' Websites Are Fully Accessible to Disabled Voters: . Since this article, a couple of candidates have worked on their accessible. However, we need ALL candidates to do better for disabled Americans

I will say that I personally think that accessibility is only one of several reasons for the voting gap among people with disabilities. And the gap itself isn't as massive as some might think. A hell of a lot of disabled people vote, one way or another.

We can't use "disability rights are civil rights" as a rallying cry and then fail to support other civil rights movements.

Not every disagreement should be an action. Not every hard conversation should be about forcing someone to back down. We can’t work effectively if every disagreement over something important turns into a power struggle. None of us have the energy for that.

We need it to become normal to say β€œI don’t think that you’re doing the right thing” and β€œThis is harmful to marginalized people because…” and β€œI think this strategy is counterproductive and that we need to reconsider it.”

It is time for non-disabled and disabled ppl alike to stop shopping or donating to . Disabled ppl deserve equal pay. Our rights are worker rights.

We’re all too often only willing to criticize or confront people who we’re willing to cancel. That needs to change, and it needs to change right now. Because people we don’t want to cancel can do bad things too. Everyone does bad things sometimes.

We don’t need a replacement charismatic leader. We need to get better at collaboration and accountability and listening. We can do this.

The model of giving a leader unbounded deference up until the point that they cross enough lines that we’re ready to cancel them is toxic. We need to build community where we can have necessary conflicts and conversations much sooner and much more constructively.

"Data shows that politicians who ignore disabled Americans may miss out on a growing group of voters whose support could be up for grabs in 2020. Activists hope to take advantage of this momentum." Disabled voices could turn electoral tides!

I'm pleased to see prez campaigns begin addressing disability issues. More is needed but it's clear recognition of the increasing electoral power of the disability community as reflected by recent pieces in Time and elsewhere.

Immigrant rights are disability rights. Disability rights are immigrant rights. F u to folks who think this is a pie and we can’t focus on rights for all people.

People with disabilities aren't often represented in government or policies. We can change this by registering and voting! 21% of RIers have a disability imagine our power once we start engaging our community.
