I truly believe that systems need to change for everyone. Individuals with disabilities deserve a more independent life. And access to resources should be provided to ALL subgroups within the disabled community.
But this requires representation.
Everyone should have the ability to feel free. I was able to seek my freedom. It’s crazy that I have to say that. But the things that I found on my own have enabled me to be free mentally, and to be free physically, all in spite of my limitations.
I truly believe that representation and stories of hope can help all people. But these beacons of light should be more readily available to those with disabilities.
How can we break barriers set by those limitations and help those with disabilities to excel? How can we break them free from the mental chains imposed by community and systemic issues, and from their disability, to being truly free?
Awareness is a start...... This collection just allows those that are underrepresented know that you are seen and you are heard. 💙
