#DisabilityTooWhite – Call In

Listen (29 min)

Vilissa Thompson of Ramp Your Voice joins us to talk about the twitter storm she raised with her hashtag #DisabilityTooWhite.  Many people of color with disabilities tweeted about the barriers they find in the movement.  White people joined the conversation too. 

Is the Disability Movement Too White?  And, more importantly, if it is, what can be done about it? 

We’ve got a few other topics for today’s show:

–The current boycott of the movie “Me Before You” which hits more theaters this weekend,

–A recent release of the best towns and cities for people with disabilities.  Where do you think your city should rank on this list?  Among the best?  Among the worst?   Tell us why.

Eddie Ytuarte and Adrienne Lauby host.
