Our identities shape the way we see the world around us and how we are viewed by the world.
15% of the global population lives with a disability or disabilities, and people living with disabilities experience inequality in all its forms. To build a world where everyone is equal, we need to recognize how disability interconnects with the issues of social justice and follow the lead of the individuals at the center of the fight.
True social change cannot take place without addressing the needs of the most marginalized in society. And social justice cannot exist without disability inclusion -- essentially, disability demands justice. There are a number of ways we can create a world that is inclusive for all, and free from disability discrimination. This starts with inclusive leadership, which can only happen when the disability community is invited into discussions and encouraged to lead the way in our advocacy towards disability rights.
In this series, learn how breaking down discriminatory narratives and systems can unlock potential and value for everyone, and why without disability justice, racial, economic, and gender justice cannot be realized.
