(dis)Ability Zine CALLOUT!

I am doing a callout for submissions! DUE APRIL 30TH! PUBLICATION MAY 15TH!

I am putting together a print-zine about (dis)Abilities and the activist community. Your post can be about anything related to that topic, whether it has to do with your identity as an Activist with a (dis)Ability or difficulties fitting into your chosen activist scene (e.g. Earth First!) as an Activist with a (dis)Ability.

Possible topics:
Did you come to activism through your (dis)Ability?
Does your (dis)Ability make it harder for you to be taken seriously by people in your community?
Do you feel you have to teach people what life is like in your shoes?
Do you feel that you are by default a (dis)Ability Rights activist?

From the peanut gallery:
What are ways that people can make spaces more accessible to people with (dis)Abilities?
How can we make spaces accessible to both invisible and visible disabilities at the same time?
What are the different accommodations needed for different (dis)Abilities?
How do we handle Service Dogs?

Nitty gritty: DUE APRIL 30th, Publication May 15th. All people who get published will get a copy or two free! Proceeds will go to a (to be voted on) (dis)Ability Right's Activist group! Send me your pictures, poems, essays, 1st hand accounts, critical analyses, etc BY APRIL 15th! I want this out on MAY DAY!
