Meet Regina and Al. Their friendship and respect for one another all started at a fundraiser before a Phillies baseball game in 2019. “I watched Regina give a beautiful speech at the event about her recently diagnosed son, Shane,” recalled Al. “I thought to myself, ‘My friends at Cure SMA need to meet this amazing mom and get her involved.’”
Happy Tuesday! Hope you’re all having a good week so far,
So I wanted to boost black disability advocates and organizations, so I wrote a column to highlight some of the social media accounts that I follow. Considering that disability disproportionately affects people of color, I believe it is important to intentionally diversify our feeds. We need to uplift people who live at the intersection of multiple marginalized communities.
If you follow any black disability advocates, let me know — I’m looking to diversify my feed and expand my community!
