Nation Continues to Respond to Police Brutality and Racism

Our Nation continues to reckon with the impact of racism and police violence in the wake of the killing of George Floyd, the shooting death of Rayshard Brooks in Atlanta over the weekend, and countless other lives lost. Speaking out on the oppression of any group and against hate and discrimination in its many different forms is part and parcel of what disability rights is all about. The Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN), in partnership with the American Association of People with Disabilities and Green Mountain Self-Advocates, has created a plain language booklet on police violence and anti-black racism to help people understand more how these issues all relate to one another and what people with disabilities can do. See The Arc’s statement that was released following the killing of George Floyd.
