Ever Had an Awkward Interaction With Someone With a Disability? These Ads Are For You.


It’s easy to get nervous around a person who’s different from you — we at The Mighty understand this. That’s why we appreciate anyone who makes an effort to educate themselves about disability.

A British advocacy group called Scope is tackling this with a light-hearted ad campaign, “End the Awkward,” to get people “thinking different about disability.” In the ads below, humor is used to teach an important lesson — it’s OK to make a mistake when interacting with someone with a disability, but it’s necessary to start realizing when we do this.

That way, as Scope puts it, we can all get over it.
