Threads to discuss + some further interesting articles

Sorry for the delay in posting this--I'm coping with hand injuries at the moment that are making communication difficult. 

Some threads for discussion I'd like to address for tonight are, as we've continued to discuss, about who gets to represent whom within disability--I'm constantly reminded of the phrase "nothing about us without us". Especially in the case of intellectual disability, this very frequently simply does not happen. 

This post, however, is a fantastic step towards remediating that.

Article on #CripTheVote

Hey everyone! 

Just came across this article in my Facebook news feed, which discusses some interesting terminology like we've discussed in class. We've talked a lot about how we name ourselves, and this blog post discusses it in the context of the #CripTheVote movement.
