We are writers. We must write. We must use hard and honest words. Not ‘alt-right’ but white supremacist. Not ‘religious exception’ but homophobic hate. Not ‘thoughtless’ but ableist. Call it what it is. A writer’s job is to tell her truth, loud and clear.
The Disability Visibility Project™ (DVP) is a community partnership with StoryCorps and an online community dedicated to recording, amplifying, and sharing disability stories and culture. Support the DVP on Patreon.
