Photo of 3 disabled Asian Americans, Mia Mingus, Alice Wong and Sandy Ho (from left to right). Mia is wearing glasses and large hoop earrings. Alice is wearing a brightly colored scarf and an army-camouflage-print jacket. She is wearing a mask over her nose with a tube for her Bi-Pap machine. Sandy has wavy short hair and is wearing a black sweater. Behind them is a concrete wall with a door. On the top against a white background in black text: “ACCESS IS LOVE” in white. The “O” in “LOVE” is a red heart.
I’m excited to announce the launch of a new project in collaboration with
Mia Mingus and Sandy Ho: Access Is Love.
Access Is Love aims to help build a world where accessibility is understood as an act of love.
We believe access should be a collective responsibility instead of a sole responsibility placed on a few individuals. We outlined 10 ways to start creating and expanding access and included a list of readings and resources on accessibility & disability justice.
We also have clothing, mugs, totes and stickers available at our online store! From Feb-Mar 2019, all proceeds from sales will go to the House of GG, the Griffin-Gracy Educational Retreat & Historical Center, the 1st educational & historical center solely dedicated to Transgender and Gender Nonconforming people in the US.
A different advocacy group will be highlighted every 2 months. For any questions about this project: firstname.lastname@example.org
Include “Access Is Love Project” in the subject line!
