On Saturday, January 20th, 2018, tens of thousands of people marched through Seattle for the second annual Women’s March. Some criticized last year’s march for mostly representing white women, and not offering a broader message representing a diversity of women’s experiences. KBCS’s Casey Martin was at the march and asked people if this year’s march felt more inclusive than last year’s.
It’s Disability Awareness Month and we host a discussion on what some are doing to increase awareness of what people with disabilities have to offer our communities. We take time to reflect on the history of the disability justice movement and consider the experience of people with disabilities and their families in incorporating this population into our communities, our schools and in our workplaces.
