DIVE DEEPER + ACT NOW

Immediate Actions To Take:+

  • Call Your Reps to Support HR 3 to Reduce Prescription Drug Prices.
  • Take These Actions provided by Anti-Racism Daily — 
    • Volunteer for Protest Access, a volunteer collective focused on Black Lives Matter and anti-racism related content on social media that provides captioning, transcription, and visual descriptions as requested.
    • Save the Disability COVID-19 Healthcare Support Advocacy Hotline number, a resource created by the Disability Underground Network for those with disabilities that need COVID-19 related medical advocacy or other support: 1-800-626-4959.
    • If you see medical malpractice against people of disabilities, report it. Here is a list of contacts for each state in the U.S.
  • Conduct an accessibility audit in your life — (words provided by Mia Mingus and @thecomradecloset) 
    • If you create images to share, especially infographics, please provide image descriptions along with graphics to download/share. It helps to remind people about access and allows them to make your content accessible. Disability justice is a practice. 
    • If you have a website for the campaign you're sharing about, have the image descriptions right next to the graphic so folks can download/copy it. If not, put them in the caption or let folks know they can DM you for them. 
    • This goes for videos, too. Please caption your videos. And whenever possible, share the most accessible version. No more of this, "DM me for the captioned version." If you have a captioned version of a video, then that is the one you share. 
  • In your daily life: 
    • Push back against the ableist demand that someone must be a "productive member of society" in order to deserve life. 
    • Defy the ways in which ableism asks us to disconnect from our bodies.
