As we fight for access in casting for disabled actors, we must remember this.

True inclusion in Hollywood starts in the writers room. it starts with scripts, directors, and the story.

#FilmDis
We could cast all the disabled actors we wanted, but if we don't have disabled writers to tell authentic stories of what it's like to be disabled, we are never going to get disabled stories right.
Disabled writers understand how to include the subtle nuances of being disabled, something nondisabled writers never include because they don't understand what those are. No amount of research can ever replace lived experience.
