I love this paper my disability department gave me. The representative also told me to report ANY kind of ableism, even if it seems minuscule to me.
The top three are hard to read so:
Disability accommodations are rights, not special help. (Ask for what you need. Advocate for yourself.)
You are an important and valuable part of campus diversity. (Diversity includes disability.)
College disability services officers can be gatekeepers. (Most are good allies for students, but some are not. Demand professional, individualized, respectful services and file a complaint if you don’t get them.)


Yes!

1,200 aboriginal Canadian women have gone missing over the past 30 years. Hashtag asks #AmINext?

On Aug. 17, Winnipeg police pulled the body of 15-year-old Tina Fontaine out of the Red River near Alexander Docks.

The scope of the tragedy prompted Holly Jarret of Hamilton, Ont. — cousin to Loretta Saunders, an indigenous woman who was murdered in February at age 26 — to launch the #AmINext hashtag earlier this month.

So, what’s being done about it? | Follow micdotcom

What is going on? Women of color aren’t safe anywhere.

No list of “diverse books” should ever include a work by an author with privilege on whatever axis of oppression the book is being chosen as an example of.

If you’re recommending books about women, do not recommend books by men.

If you’re recommending books about…

As an aspiring author, this is truth.

FEATURE: Two Young Black Female Entrepreneurs Launch Brown Sugar Stickers
We are two sisters born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. We are Sequoia (18) and Dakota (20), and we want to be a part of the movement of empowering black people. We launched Brown Sugar Stickers to promote awareness for black pride and positivity. Kinky hair and dark skin have been seen as a negative thing in this country for a long time. We made these stickers to take that negative vibe about black people and turn it into a positive one…

Three pics of me trying to look adorable today. Top left close up of my face. I shaved half my head again! Other two pics are full bodied pics with me in my chair, wearing purple pants, knee high combat boots, a gray sweater and my silver and green Slytherin scarf. 

My RSD is acting up a bit because I overdid it yesterday but I don’t care and I’m wearing what I want regardless.
