Disability and Ableism Conversation
In the United States, one in four adults have some type of disability. Even though a quarter of the population is included, this issue can be difficult to talk about. There are a number of factors that may lead people to avoid this conversation: uncertainty around proper terminology, feeling like you don’t know enough about it, or feeling fatigued by having to explain what living with a disability is like. Society has a responsibility to acknowledge and care for all its members. This conversation is a step in that direction, an opportunity to explore topics associated with ableism and disability, and share how our life experiences inform our understanding of this subject.
