Title: You can be a part of bringing awareness and advocacy, in simple ways and larger.

People have worked hard to ensure that people with disabilities are not discriminated against in life. 
Liberty or Freedom has a price, the price is Responsibility.

You  can be a part of this awareness and advocacy, in simple ways and larger.
 
Each time we ask another for a common courtesy, or explain to someone how we wish to be treated because of a disability,
each time we ask for respect, request an accessible way into a venue, we are teaching awareness about disability. 

When we use an accessible venue over an inaccessible one, when we purchase assistive and adaptive technology,
when we file a complaint, tell our story to an organization or a legislator, participate in a legislation day or protest,
we are advocating for people with disabilities.

If you do not share, we will not be heard. 

Together we can find a common voice for all those with disabilities and their families. 

Make it a part of your life to do what you can do!
