What constitutes advocacy?
Although I don’t shy away from advocating for my own needs, I don’t consider myself a disability advocate. I don’t attend rallies or push through legislation.
On occasion, I’ve written a letter or two when I’ve encountered injustices, but I can’t say they’ve really made a difference. Sometimes though I feel like living our lives is enough. I know day-to-day activities take a lot out of me. Plus, I think seeing us live our lives goes a long way toward advocating for the disability community.
What are your thoughts on this topic? Should I be doing more to advocate for the disabled community? Are you involved in advocacy?
