Process for the design of the artwork for @ttwd.next of @disability_visibility – this was a challenging artwork to produce. My emotions were swimming with Alice’s provocative and difficult vision of the future and it took me quite some time to find a shape to think about the things that she brought up. A really humbling project to be part of. Thanks to @_echotango_ for asking me and the entire team behind the Assembly for the Future and @bleed.online

I have not been this excited, grateful for or changed by a book since Exit West by Moshin Hamid. 📖 I tend to live in the space of the sociological imagination. I have always been deeply curious about the perspective and lived experiences of other people. In “Disability Visibility: First-Person Stories from the Twenty-First Century” Alice Wong has curated essays from a diverse range of voices from within the disability community. 💙 This is NOT inspiration porn. This is NOT pity on the page. This IS an invitation into the perspective of a diverse group of contributors who generously share their perspective on their experiences, navigating life with their disability/disabilities and other matrices of oppression and or privilege. Maybe every single essay will feel like learning, maybe you’ll finally feel some representation for your life, either way this book is a gift to humanity. It’s smart, at times funny (some contributors were so sharp I laughed out loud), and then at times enraging, ableism is fucking infuriating, always. 🖤 •Follow Alice Wong @alicatsamurai @disability_visibility •Buy & READ her book •Go to her page right now & register for the online book discussion this SATURDAY AUG. 8 •She will be raffling 5 copies of this book (more details on her page) Side note, why is alt text not an option for multiple pics, @instagram ??

Finally got my hands on this book and after reading only the introduction I am teary eyed. Wong opens perfectly with “Staying alive is a lot of work for a disabled person in an ableist society” Existing alone can feel debilitating in the world we live in right now. I have felt this more than ever as of late during a pandemic in which people selfishly will not consider the consequences of their actions. We are worth more and are so much more than what the world believes. @alicatsamurai I will not be putting this book down anytime soon♥️ Thank you.

“The A.D.A. is important, but culture change, real culture change takes much longer to achieve. Anyone can create this change by speaking up in everyday situations, such as considering someone’s dietary restrictions at a dinner party, asking for an accessible venue at a company event and or simply believing that those who request accommodations need them. We all have a shared responsibility to consider others, regardless of whether they reveal their disability. Speak up not only for your own disability but for invisible disabilities, and disabled people of color as well. Be more deliberate. We are here, and we will always be here.” -Alice Wong @disability_visibility Today at Waypoint we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). While the ADA was a huge civil rights accomplishment for folks with disabilities, we also acknowledge there is still plenty of work that needs to be done. Thank you to Alice Wong for this quote from her recent interview in the @nytimes and for a lifetime of fighting for access, equity, and inclusion for all people with disabilities. We cannot wait to read her new book Disability Visibility: First-Person Stories from the Twenty-First Century and suggest you do too. Link in bio for the NYT article we referenced.

Responding to the inimitable Alice Wong on Thursday are the equally inimitable Kera Sherwood-O'Regan and AM Kanngieser! Kera is an Indigenous multidisciplinary storyteller and activist based in Aotearoa New Zealand, who's work centers around structurally oppressed communities and crosses the intersections of Indigenous & disability rights, hauora (health), and climate change. AM is is a geographer and sound artist who's work looks to the intersections of community organising, self-determination, ecology, and listening. What a powerhouse trio of speakers to inspire discussion amongst Future Builders and Moderators in our breakouts! @disability_visibility @keraoregan @am_kanngieser @_echotango_ @not_yet_its_difficult #AFTF2029 #bleed2020 . .

It fills me with emotion and pride for my community to hold this book in my hand! My beautiful friend and activist @alicatsamurai @disability_visibility put this book together with first-person stories of disabled people. Thank you so much for this absolute gift! I find myself highlighting parts that touch me and I am hoping to remember and take with me as I move through this world. Even the opening, the dedication, hits me right in the chest, “To my younger self and all the disabled kids today who can’t imagine their futures. The world is ours, and this is for all of us.” I often need audio and visual to properly process text and definitely for longer text, so fortunately Disability Visibility is available on paperback, audiobook, and e-book. I am using audio and paperback. 🙏 #DisabilityVisability [Image Description: a selfie of Annie wearing glasses and holding up a book that reads, ”Disability Visibility, First-person stories from the twenty-first century, edited by Alice Wong. ” Gold crumpled paper edited in as background.]
Closing out a fantastic month of highlighting activists, artists, and more that share this space for disability advocacy.

Started the day with this great new collection – all the writings we need for this month, the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The book's editor Alice Wong writes so well about community – community is political, community is magic, community is power, community is resistance! I'm glad to be in Alice's community and to have read her work for 5+ years. I have so many early morning thoughts about how starting the book with Harriet McBryde Johnson's writing on debating the modern day eugenic philosopher Peter Singer was a brilliant move but… Let's just say congrats Alice! 🎉

I found this work to be an incredibly nuanced collection of stories . The authors highlight the diversity of experiences for people with disabilities. The authors share about their own personal experiences and deal with complex topics including race, gender, love, expectations, sexual assault, and accessibility. This book highlights the necessity for society to become accessible, and to stop treating people with disabilities as though they are “brave” for existing, and instead a society wherein all identities advocate for intersectional justice and include disability justice as a crucial part of justice and advocacy work. This book is necessary reading. Folks can learn more about @disability_visibility anthology work at https://disabilityvisibilityproject.com/book/ I received this work as an advanced reader copy and have shared my honest thoughts on the book. #bookstagram #books #netgalley #netgalleyreview #disabilityvisibility

Alice Wong is a disability activist, media maker, and consultant. She is the Founder and Director of the Disability Visibility Project® (DVP), an online community dedicated to creating, sharing and amplifying disability media and culture created in 2014. Alice is also a co-partner in four projects: DisabledWriters.com, a resource to help editors connect with disabled writers and journalists, #CripLit, a series of Twitter chats for disabled writers with novelist Nicola Griffith, #CripTheVote, a nonpartisan online movement encouraging the political participation of disabled people with co-partners Andrew Pulrang and Gregg Beratan, and Access Is Love with co-partners Mia Mingus and Sandy Ho, a campaign that aims to help build a world where accessibility is understood as an act of love instead of a burden or an afterthought. (Bio from DVP website) Disability Visibility Project Website: http://DisabilityVisibilityProject.com Twitter: @DisVisibility Support on Patreon: patreon.com/DVP Thank you for your ongoing solidarity and work! We 🖤 you Alice! Video description and transcript: [Alice Wong, creator of the Disability Visibility Project, an Asian American woman with dark hair pulled back from her face wears a teal and gray sweatshirt. She has a plastic ventilator mask over her nose that fits across her face above her ears. A plastic tube extends down from the mask's center. She is speaking into the camera.] Hi my name is Alice Wong and I’m the founder and director of the Disability Visibility Project. Medical abuse and injustice is a THING. Marginalized people know this intimately and I have experienced this as well. There are too many people we all know and love who have needlessly suffered and died. I support the Medical Abuse Hotline. This hotline will serve as a community-driven means to understand and expose the medical injustice and abuse our communities face everyday. It’ll also provide resources and support to people about their medical rights AND create a network to challenge and transform the medical industrial complex. Justice IS the best medicine! So, Call Us! Support Us! and Join Us! Thank you. @alicatsamurai @disability_visibility

The Radical Visibility Coloring Book is on sale now at etsy.com/shop/rebirthgarments ! I have about 250 copies that I just printed on the risograph machine here at my residency at @theprintshopla ! Please go buy some ASAP so that I don’t have to lug them all back to Chicago in my suitcases!! It has been so much fun learning a new medium and getting to do the entire process of making this coloring book zine by myself! For those of you who don’t know, the risograph is a precursor to the Photocopier we use today, but after a mimeograph (which is what my dad used back in the 60’s for his underground newspaper) . The risograph can do up to 2 colors at a time and is kind of like an automatic screen printer for paper, super fun quality! Swipe to see some examples of the line drawings that you could color in yourself! Image 1- of a light yellow color with pink geodesic pattern over it and mini line drawings of disabled, queer, And poc folx of all sizes! Image 2 of the inside front cover that explains the coloring book and the first coloring book page which features @alicatsamurai of the @disability_visibility project with their vent around my neck in a cute way from a photo by @graceduval , 3rd image features @hiareyousingle and @jessyyates from photos by @sonnybunni ! #coloringbook #allages #adultcoloringbook #radicalvisibility #queeranddisabled #disabilityjustice #disabledandcute
