In this episode, Imani educates us about “pass-the-mic activism” to bring disabled people to the table to create more expansive ideologies. Ableism isn’t quite like racism or homophobia where it’s a set of actions that you use to oppress others. For disabled people is a lot of silencing and ignoring an entire population of people. Imani gives us a rundown of disabled voter suppression and how that plays out politically. She discusses America’s imprisoned populations not having voter rights, guardianship laws as a barrier to voting and ADA accessibility laws being waved for religious organizations.
