Accessibility and activism go hand in hand. “If we lift up those who are oppressed, that is a win for us all.” – Kriston Pumphrey talks to the crowd at Detroit Disability Power’s BLM protest.

I want to share a bit about the Black Deaf community. This is a vulnerable community, truly. We are the last ones to know what’s happening. We need people to step up and provide accessibility, so we can know what’s going on. We need people to step up and include us. They need to invite us to the table, so we can discuss our needs. I know when we elevate those most oppressed, that’s a win for us all.
