Tomorrow is Blogging Against Disablism Day

In One in Seven, Lady Bracknell writes an excellent lead-up post to Blogging Against Disablism Day which highlights the many aspects of diversity among people with disabilities.

“We are, without a shadow of a doubt, the most diverse minority group on the planet. We are everywhere you look, and yet you do not see us."
I'll have a post for tomorrow, and I hope you'll check out Diary of a Goldfish tomorrow for all the links.

(A few facts - In the U.K., Lady Bracknell says one in seven people had a disability; in the U.S., it's one in five. And, in the U.K., they use the term, "disablism”; in the US we use the term "ableism".)
