Campaign: To encourage people not to treat those with disabilities differently

I was born with cerebral palsy and find that sometimes people treat me differently as a result.

Although they might mean well, their actions can be frustrating.

People moving my wheelchair without my permission, underestimating my abilities or excluding me from conversations can make me feel isolated.

With Fixers, I want to show others that people with disabilities should be treated the same as everyone else.

You should take the time to get to know people as individuals and not pass judgement based on appearances. 

*NOTE: Fixers sometimes go beyond the 16-25yr age bracket while working on their Fix.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:
