🚨Heads up🚨

This resolution is NOT supported by the Party’s own Disability Committee.

Please vote it down.

Folks need to stop speaking over disabled activists in #OurNDP
#ONDP #disabilityinclusion Resolution 12:15 Needs Based Supports for Children w/Autism
For context - a resolutions committee that includes many unelected staffers pre-prioritized the hundreds of resolutions.

Their picks on disability issues were chosen over those submitted by the actual Disability Committee (PLWD).

This is ableism @OntarioNDP
While we’re talking ableism in politics.

This whole Convention is again centered on inaccessibility - which don’t end with closed captioning FYI.

No lead time to read resolutions. 400 in 24 hours!
No details on elections.
No way to contribute via chat - must be able to speak.

LIVE with @DrTedros at the Pre-Summit on #DisabilityInclusion in the Health Sector ⬇️…
@DrTedros "Many of us either experience some form of disability ourselves, or we have a family member, or friend who experiences disability. But far too often, when they seek out health care, our brothers and sisters with disability are being left behind"-@DrTedros #DisabilityInclusion
@DrTedros "The barriers they may face are numerous, including the physical environment of health facilities, the attitudes of health workers, or the communication of health information"-@DrTedros #DisabilityInclusion

Even the most cursory glance at the economic situation of people with disabilities in Canada paints a bleak picture. Disparities in income, wealth, and economic opportunities have widened since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the proposed....1/7
Canadian Disability Benefit has yet to become a law, it serves as an important reminder to analyze and understand the economic challenges faced by those with disabilities. 2/7

Hello #a11y crowd!

I know that a lot of people have been following some comments I made regarding content/trigger warnings, so I figured I'd gather all my comments in a thread with some anecdotal best practices and food for thought for people who are interested. (1/20)
First off, I'm humbled by the number of #accessibility professionals who are following this conversation and taking my words so seriously. I meant my comment to be a one-off comment regarding better care and consideration in UX regarding mental health in/and digital #a11y. (2/20)
I'd also like to offer the reminder that while I have mental health and medical triggers related to #OCPD, #PTSD, and post-concussive syndrome, #disabled people are not a monolith and what others experience and what they need will be different. What I share is anecdotal. (3/20)

ดิฉันจะเป็นออทิสติก ปัจจุบันเป็นคนออทิสติกที่เป็นคนไทยคนเดียวที่ได้รับทุน ทุนเรียนปริญญาเอกสาขาเเพทยศาสตร์อยู่ที่สหราชอาณาจักร ทุนจากสหภาพยุโรปนะคะ ดิฉันมั่นใจว่ามีความรู้ ความสามารถเเละประโยชน์มากกว่า ส.ส บางคนคะ กรุณาเลิกเอาความพิการมาล้อเลียนได้เเล้วคะ
#ปารีณา #นิกกี้ก้อย
นอกจากนี้ก็ได้เคยเป็นตัวแทนประเทศไทยไปงานรับโนเบลสาขาสันติภาพ (Nobel Peace Prize) ในปี 2015 , ฝึกงานที่ Smithsonian Institution, DC ได้ทุนตั้งแต่มัธยมปลายจนถึงปัจจุบัน (ไม่ใช่ทุนรัฐบาลไทยและไม่มีข้อผูกมัด) และอื่นๆอีกมากมาย ไม่ได้จะอวดคะ แต่จะบอกว่าคนพิการทำได้มากกว่าที่คุณคิด Image
คนพิการสามารถทําได้มากกว่าที่ใครคิด ถ้าเรามีการให้โอกาสคนพิการในด้านการศึกษา เช่นทุนศึกษาต่อต่างประเทศเหมือนคนทั่วไป (ทุนเราเป็นทุนรัฐบาลและมหาวิทยาลัยต่างประเทศแบบไม่มีข้อผูกมัด) จ้างงานคนพิการมากขึ้นและเปลี่ยนทัศนคติในตัวคุณ / stereotypes เกี่ยวกับคนพิการนะคะ #ablelism

Now that the year is actually at the end and I have seen almost all the movies (haha not even close), I will list my favorites in no particular order in a thread no one will care about but me. But first, @letterboxd says there are 22,519 films released in the 2020s. Yikes. 1/?
#1 @MinariMovie by @A24 which is genuinely a movie I have thought about regularly since I saw it in January. Wider release in 2021 and do not sleep on this one. Gorgeous Korean American Arkansas farmer story of building a new future and generational gap. 😍🥰
#2 @nomadlandfilm by Chloe Zhao which is a sweeping hybrid film of the new American west and the death of the American dream. @Criterion needs to go ahead and collect. 3/?
