Many people on twitter have been tweeting lately about #BlackLivesMatter in light of recent events this year.

Persephone Jones, @galvezmiro, has been tweeting the names and photos of black and disabled people killed by police. As many in the disability community know all too well, there have been countless cases where race and disability intersect with police brutality.

Here are just a few tweets from Persephone along with her hashtag #DisabledBlackLivesMatterToo

Thank you, Persephone!
