Incluse This! Episode 6: Is COVID-19 a Disability?
In this episode, Dr. Marjorie Roberts shares her personal insights and experiences as a COVID-19 Long Hauler. And we discuss why she's pushing so hard for COVID-19 to be recognized as a disability. With her life turned upside down in a matter of hours, she's spent the last 12-months advocating for herself and others in the COVID-19 Community. She says, "We're on a mission to be heard. And COVID-19 is a disability. This is the bottom line."
Incluse This! Episode 5: Will the Cripples Save You?
Throughout the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic has been the impetus for bringing the term ableism to mainstream conversations. In this episode, Charis Hill and I discuss the messaging we've been confronted with, the actions we've witnessed, and the structures in-place that devalue and destroy disabled human lives.
Incluse This! Episode 4: What Disability Community?
When we think of disability, we often think of the literal definition, which is a medical issue that keeps a person from fully participating in daily activities. And when we think of disability community, we often think of the total population of all disabled people. However, a medical diagnosis does not automatically make anyone a member of the Disability Community. In today's episode, we explore this phenomenon.
Incluse This! Episode 3: Words Are Powerful
How powerful are the words we use? What effect do words have on how we interpret information? In this episode, host Sarah Kirwan and guest Jourdan Saunders, have a down-to-earth conversation about words, words, and more words. Listeners will walk away with a better understanding of how powerful words are, within the framework of disability, woke capitalism, relationships, plain language, getting comfortable in our conversations, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and much more.
Incluse This! Episode 2: Inclusion is Bullsh**
Guest Leroy Moore, founder of the Krip Hop Nation, joins host Sarah Kirwan, to talk all about what the words Disability Equity and Inclusion mean, and how they're subjective and based upon interpretation. We discuss Disability Justice, as it relates to policing and prisons, along with Disability Policy and Leadership, Black Artists, the historical exclusion of people of color from the Disability Rights Movement, and much more.
