DAY FOUR: Ableism - Calling Up Justice!

DAY FOUR: Ableism

30 Days of Racial and Disabled Justice

https://www.instagram.com/p/CTm3HvMpn7d/

A system that places value on people’s bodies and minds based on societally constructed ideas of normalcy, intelligence, excellence and productivity. These constructed ideas are deeply rooted in anti-Blackness, eugenics, colonialism and capitalism. This form of systemic oppression leads to people and society determining who is valuable and worthy based on a person’s appearance and/or their ability to satisfactorily [re]produce, excel and “behave.”   You do not have to be disabled to experience ableism.
