The Daily Dis(ability) is a news hub, blog spot, community resource and no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is channel focusing on the stories, experiences, conditions and lives of people who have disabilities.
Founded in 2017, The Daily Dis strives to educate able-bodied people about disabilities, but foremost serves as a space for people with disabilities to discover, discern, disseminate and disembark in conversations and lives online and off through news, support and resources.
An estimated 56.7 million people, nearly 19 percent of the U.S. population, is disabled. The conditions are varied, as are the experiences and needs. And yet, society struggles with seeing, making room for and understanding the disabled population.
Whether you’re young or old, whether your illness is visible or invisible, this space is for you. If you don’t have a disability but are trying to learn more to support a loved one or just make space for those with disabilities, you’ve come to the right place.
