  • "Let's Play Ableism Bingo!": A tool, reflections, and resource list from Fakequity guest blogger Carrie Griffin Basas: "Catching people, including yourself, in violations of this card should be an opening, not a closing or judgment. Truth be told, you could catch me in violations of this card at different moments. And I just might have spilled my single-origin hemp latte on the entitlement bingo card. Just because I have a disability does not mean that I do right by all people with disabilities all of the time, whatever my intent."

  • What You're Saying When You Say "I Don't Need a Mic": This piece shares perspectives from the Unitarian Universalist Association that are important within and outside of faith-specific settings. "Failing to use a microphone, in other words, is a form of exclusion. 'When I'm excluded,' our anonymous leader continues, 'I feel weary, frustrated, and invisible. It's as though I'm on the other side of a plate glass window from the room where almost everyone else is, and they don't even notice that I'm stuck outside of their conversation.'"

  • I'm Not Your Inspiration, Thank You Very Much - a humorous and heartfelt TED Talk from Stella Young, a comedian and journalist who explains why she believes "Disability doesn't make you exceptional, but questioning what you think you know about it does."

  • 25 Simple Ways We Can All Be More Disability Inclusive - a blog by Vu Le sharing community generated advice for inclusive practices. We have work to do to make AE materials accessible for people with disabilities, beginning with using a larger font size for our newsletter.
