Special Project

Special Project NEW!

Disability Justice, My World

Entered in Disability Awareness

Objective

Fifteen percent of the world’s population experiences some form of disability, but you might never know that based on how inaccessible our world actually is. In our Instagram video series, Disability Justice: My World, we invited people from the global disability community to share just one thing, big or small, that if changed, could drastically improve their day to day lives

Strategy

From calls to dismantle eco-ableism to demands for marriage equality and accessible evacuation plans, Disability Justice: My World combines powerful personal anecdotes with instructive and sometimes surprising solutions — in just 60 seconds. Each video and each story not only raises awareness but also inspires people to take action; to change laws, to break down societal barriers, and to reimagine cities, streets, offices, classrooms, bathrooms and everything in between so that our world can be a more just, inclusive and accessible place, for everyone.

Results

With 20 videos from 12 countries, Disability Justice: My World has garnered millions of views and has helped amplify the voices of people who are too often overlooked — or maybe never even invited to participate in the conversation.
