MOST RECENT

Spent the afternoon all fired up at Yale Law School’s Rebellious Lawyering Conference today. Participated in a dynamic and unfiltered dialogue on disability justice, intersectional identities, connections between institutionalization and mass incarceration, racism and White supremacy in the disability rights space, ableism in other activism/organized movement spaces... We tend to approach issues that we are passionate about from a narrow framework be it race, gender, class, sexuality, disability, etc. Now more than ever before, we must find common connections between struggles (intersectionality of struggles) and this is of particular importance to those of us who are members of multiple marginalized communities. #RebLaw18 #DisabilityJustice #IntersectionalJustice #DisabilitySolidarity #Disability #Justice #Intersectionality

At a young age, Simone Biles was already competing as a level 8 gymnast when she was diagnosed with ADHD. She went on to win a gold medal at the World Championships at the age of 16, becoming the first female African-American athlete to win gold in the all-around. She secured her spot on the U.S women’s gymnastics team at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, where she won four gold medals. She is the most decorated American gymnast in history, with 19 Olympic and World Championship medals.
But in 2016, a Russian hacking organization leaked the private medical information of many Olympic athletes; targeting seemed to be focused on black American women, including Biles and Venus and Serena Williams. Biles’ medical records showed that she used methylphenidate and tried to frame the leak as if Biles was doping. That medication is, of course, Ritalin.
Showing grace and strength in the face of a breach of privacy, Biles used the opportunity to speak out against ADHD stigma. She sent out a series of tweets show she is unashamed. "I have ADHD and I have taken medicine for it since I was a kid. Please know, I believe in clean sport, have always followed the rules, and will continue to do so as fair play is critical to sport and is very important to me. Having ADHD, and taking medicine for it is nothing to be ashamed of [and] nothing that I'm afraid to let people know." Never change, Simone.

“My spirit is unconquerable. Fearless I will face each foe for I know I am capable. I don't care what’s probable; through blood sweat and tears I am unstoppable."
--Anthony Robles

When Anthony Robles was born in 1988, doctors could not explain why he was born without his right leg. “My mom always told me growing up that ‘God made me this way for a reason’ and she made me believe it. When I was 14, I realized what that reason was when I tried out for wrestling team.” Being the smallest and “worst wrestler” was no match for Anthony’s passion and discipline. Anthony believed he could one day be a champion wrestler. He finished his high school junior and senior years with a 96-0 record before becoming a 3-time All-American and the 2011 National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA) National Champion. Through years of hard work, Robles acquired the strength and size in his upper body of a wrestler in a weight class several classes higher than his 125-pound division and worked to develop a wrestling style that maximized his ability to use that strength. Despite excellent athletic and academic performance in high school, few college wrestling programs attempted to recruit Robles. “They thought I was too small to wrestle in college and that a one-legged wrestler could never compete with the nation’s best college wrestlers. I walked into Arizona State University compelled to prove to them, and the world, anything was possible.”

These reformist are out here reforming ways in which marginalized folks get killed by cops. Out here like, "don't shoot those em. Here, use this instead."

We really don't need any more or different forms of violence. This is why #abolition is the immediate imperative." - @talilalewis

Bergerak tidak hanya soal melangkahkan kaki..bergerak tidak selalu mengayunkan tangan..
Meski tak cukup ruang untuk mengeksplor diri,setidaknya masih bisa menjadi seorang pemikir..
Ingat!ketika kita mengeluh tak mampu menjadi seperti orang lain,masih ada yng mengeluhkan tidak bisa menjadi seperti kita..tetap bersyukur
Thank's to Allah

Hello Liberty Family! What’s this week’s small tip to make a BIG difference in your day-to-day wellness?

Get Your Yearly Check-up!

No one likes doing it—making the appointment, scheduling time to get down to the doctor’s office, waiting in the lobby, especially when you’re not even sick (yet). But preventative care is so important and so often ignored. The greatest benefit of the annual physical is knowledge—both for you and your physician. The visits establish a baseline for your health against which your doctor can detect unhealthy trends before they become full-blown risk factors. Another benefit is the connection you will develop with your doctors. When a health crisis occurs, will you will have a doctor and staff who already know and care about you.

To get the most out of your annual checkup, take a moment to prepare for it:
• Make a list of your health concerns • Make a list of the medications you are taking • Get a copy of your medical records and re-familiarize yourself with your family medical history • Review your health plan to be sure you understand what your insurance covers. Call your doctor in advance to see which tests/screenings you usually run. You can request that your doctor not perform tests which are not covered by your health plan.
Schedule an appointment soon, especially if you’ve been putting it off. It will give you peace of mind, agency over your health, and can reduce your overall spending on health care.

Be well.

Roscoe and I wear black today because as a Deaf woman, I am in the 40% of people like me who have been sexually harassed just because of my disability. Women with disabilities - particularly physical or intellectual disabilities- are seen as less than human by the general population. So it sort of makes sense that they would be easy targets. Also, because of their disabilities they tend to be not believed if they DO report incidents. Inclusion needs to happen now so that disabled people aren’t living like this anymore.
