Signal Boost: Blogging Against Disablism Day 2015

Blogging Against Disablism Day, May 1st 2015 I suspect most people who read this will already be aware that 1st May is Blogging Against Disablism Day (BADD) as it has been every year since 2006.  But I wanted to post a reminder here just in case.

That’s this coming Friday

BADD is an opportunity for both disabled and non disabled people to blog and share about disability discrimination (otherwise known as ableism or disablism) – what they think, what they’ve experienced and even any successes (which for once it’s looking like I might be able to share at some point soon although probably not in time for BADD).  BADD has proved a very popular event over the years it’s been running and people participate from all over the world.

It gives a brilliant sense of community and helps to realise that you aren’t alone.  I don’t often feel like that but there are times now and then when I forget that others have experienced what I have and know what it’s like.

I’d really encourage everyone who reads this to either participate themselves or if not a blogger to at least read some of the posts people write on 1st May.

As always, The Goldfish is hosting and you can find the BADD hub over on her blog. They are also on twitter as @BADDtweets and there is a facebook page too

I’ve taken part in BADD every year since it started and my posts for it can be found here
