- "Let's Play Ableism Bingo!": A tool, reflections, and resource list from Fakequity guest blogger Carrie Griffin Basas: "Catching people, including yourself, in violations of this card should be an opening, not a closing or judgment. Truth be told, you could catch me in violations of this card at different moments. And I just might have spilled my single-origin hemp latte on the entitlement bingo card. Just because I have a disability does not mean that I do right by all people with disabilities all of the time, whatever my intent."
- Who am I to stop it? A documentary film on isolation, art, and transformation after brain injury: “We’re making this film to explore the role art plays in many people’s lives for connecting communities, bringing peace and peace of mind, engaging in work, and, in the case of our subjects, exploring their new lives after brain injury (TBI). It was important for us to make a film from within the community, and Co-Director Cheryl Green identifies as a peer with TBI.”
- Trauma Informed Workplace Accommodation: From Trauma Informed Oregon's newsletter: "What happens when the American Disabilities Act (ADA) and Trauma Informed Care (TIC) meet? Kelly Myers, Graduate Research Assistant at TIO, shares some insight around how to make workplace ADA accommodations trauma informed especially when the dis/ability doesn't have outward symptoms."
- What You're Saying When You Say "I Don't Need a Mic": This piece shares perspectives from the Unitarian Universalist Association that are important within and outside of faith-specific settings. "Failing to use a microphone, in other words, is a form of exclusion. 'When I'm excluded,' our anonymous leader continues, 'I feel weary, frustrated, and invisible. It's as though I'm on the other side of a plate glass window from the room where almost everyone else is, and they don't even notice that I'm stuck outside of their conversation.'"
- I'm Not Your Inspiration, Thank You Very Much - a humorous and heartfelt TED Talk from Stella Young, a comedian and journalist who explains why she believes "Disability doesn't make you exceptional, but questioning what you think you know about it does."
- 25 Simple Ways We Can All Be More Disability Inclusive - a blog by Vu Le sharing community generated advice for inclusive practices. We have work to do to make AE materials accessible for people with disabilities, beginning with using a larger font size for our newsletter.
