My Body Doesn’t Oppress Me; Society Does

Understanding the social and medical models of disability can be difficult for people who are raised in the mainstream non-disabled (and usually inaccessible) American culture.

Understanding the concept of Universal Access can also be difficult – and so Dean Spade has created a super-awesome short, a conversation between Stacey Milbern and Patty Berne that dissect and really delve into these topics.

It’s a fantastic video for understanding these pieces, from real experts who have lived the talk.
