Politics, the economy, sexuality, healthcare, natural disasters, race relations - every day there are breaking news and media images on these and other issues. Such stories and images have a powerful impact on all of us, but they seldom discuss or articulate the experiences and perspectives of people with disabilities. Learn more about what DisBeat is here.
