The Ways Judy Heumann Impacted the Disability Rights Movement

• "Judy Heumann, called the "mother of disability rights" passed away at the age of 75 onMarch 4th. Heumann famously said
"I want to see feisty disabled people change the world."
• "Judy was the first teacher who used a wheelchair in New York City.
Judy fought for the rights of disabled school teacher, suing the local school board of education. This is a huge step not only for public school teachers but for all professions everywhere. Disabled people deserve to be in every occupation in every level of leadership."
• "Judy changed the landscape for disability & employment laws.
Judy was the first teacher who used a wheelchair in New York City. Judy sued the local school board of education when they didn't allow her to teach in her chair.
This is a huge step not only for public school teachers but for all professions everywhere. Disabled people deserve to be in every occupation in every level of leadership. Judy set a precedent.”
• “Judy worked on a federal level to make sure disabled people had equal benefits and opportunities at work.
Judy organized a 10-city protest to encourage President Nixon to sign the Rehabilitation Act (Section 504). This act ensures that individuals with disabilities will have equal opportunities and benefits in the workplace.”
• “Judy revolutionized equal access to education. Judy helped develop legislation that became the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). IDEA makes sure that students with a disability receive a Free Appropriate Education, which is designed to meet their needs."
• "Judy worked towards independence for disabled people Judy co-founded the World Institute on Disability in 1983. The World Institute on Disability is dedicated to helping disabled people live as independently as possible.
• "Judy Heumann's tireless efforts, protest and constant work helped establish the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The Americans with Disabilities Act is a civil rights law that protects disabled people against discrimination in all areas of life."
• “Thank you Judy. Rest in Power.
We will not forget the work you did to change disability rights forever." ##Disability #disabilitycommunity

How Presentation Affects Representation - #DwhellOnIt Ep. 56

📺 - tinyurl.com/6cyw8k39

🗣 - "Taylor Lakhryst was an undecided voter who participated in a #CBC program called Face to Face during last year's federal election campaign. While being on the show gave her a chance to ask questions of a party leader, she felt CBC's production choices spoiled the experience by making her appear inept and powerless."

❓ - What's #DwhellOnIt ?

👀 - Dwhell On It is a series where I answer your questions about my lived experience as a #trans woman!

"While you expressed #Gratitude for the #Opportunity to provide visibility on the subject of abuse toward the 2SLBGTQIA+ #Community , you felt that #CBC made choices which diluted your appearance. It left you feeling, if not misrepresented, then underrepresented."

It feels as if #CBC chose to represent me as what I interpret as inept, powerless, and stuck with candy-coated concerns because who I am isn't palatable enough for Canadians who can't cope that #people such as myself strive to inspire and create #change .

#social platforms highlighted my segment as being of the utmost importance on an issue that had not been placed front and centre in the campaign until my appearance.

I continued to focus much of my argument on the treatment of my introductory video. I emphasized how problematic it was that this video highlighted "my love for #Sports and karaoke" while omitting more substantive #Comments about the importance of placing responsibility for bigotry and hate-based abuse on the abusers rather than the victims.

"I'm an undecided voter because" and "Let's be #leaders …" were extracted from two completely different sections of what I provided. #CBC created that line and not me, and I'm not sure if that is conducive to "accuracy."

"You stated that you followed all the directives given to you in advance by producers, yet you were the only one of the four participants given less than 40 seconds of airtime."

"You also reiterated that #CBC exercised poor judgment when it failed to include your exchange about pronouns with #ErinOToole .”

#CBC watered me down and presented me with the safest, most palatable and most comfortable image they could build based on the information I provided.

"Your complaint is, first and foremost, a reminder that the stories journalists tell are not really "theirs." They are the stories of real #people with real lives, ambitions, and concerns."

Journalistic Standards and Practices covers much ground regarding ethical #Journalism but doesn't cover specific circumstances.

"There is more debate to be had about editing your introductory video … it's clear that those producers took two risks with your video."

"On your frustration that the #question you asked on the show was "negotiated," … I worried it meant that programmers were forcing you to ask the questions that they wanted."

Transition Motivation, Advocating and Supporting #trans Rights

🗣 - "Do not underestimate what we're saying! Don't think that we're exaggerating things. Do not think we're probably just in the moment & it'll all just get better. Your worldview is not the same as our worldview. Your concept of the world around you is not & will never be the same as a trans individual."

City Council Approves To Prefer #Kindness

🗣 - "Good for you, everybody, all you elected officials. Trying so hard to make an eight or nine, or whatever dumb page amount, document to say, "Hey, be nice to someone else." But we're not going to define what "nice" is, so then we don't get in trouble for it."

10:57 - I've been on HRT for almost a week, and my chest is growing, but there's some shrinking I'm not comfortable with. In your experience, does the D shrink or the B's? I got told that it would be the testes, but it's not the case for me, so how is it for you?

🗣 - "I don’t want to get political. I don’t wake up and say, “I’m gonna get political today.” Like, that’s not my goal. But I know that if I want to have a life, I have to fight for my life. Who says that? Ask yourself! How many of you watch this right now and know that you have to fight for your life when you wake up? Your right to live, your right to employment, your right to safety, your right to dignity. How many people wake up and tell themselves those are things they need to do today. And I don’t even do that for myself. I do that for other people. I do that for the kids."

Hallway Conference - Creating Truly Inclusive Events

📺 - www.youtube.com/watch

On Hallway Conference, and in observance of #transdayofvisibility , Carrie Simpson from Managed Sales Pros spoke with me about creating safe spaces for everyone at events and conferences!

I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to share time with her to discuss creating inclusive events, especially on an important day like #tdov . Please enjoy the episode, like it and share it on your socials, so others can have an opportunity to watch it too!

(Subscribe to MSP's channel while you're there - Carrie's got some great sales & marketing content to enjoy!)

🗣 - "I hope you'll take some time to listen. We can all use our influence to encourage event organizers to consider inclusion & safety when planning events. No one should have to choose between their safety or mental health & pursuing career opportunities." - Carrie Simpson
