Our Ask Box is open for submissions! If you are interested in participating in the project, contact us with a photo of your life and a quick story to go along with it. Also, please state that we have permission to post it. We are especially looking for people located in Utah!
We are not your inspiration. We are not here to be looked over or looked through. We are people, some with visible disabilities, some with invisible ones. We are all independent and have our own stories to tell.
Hey guys! This is the blog that was just created by the Advocacy and Disability Culture group at the Utah Independent Living Center. They are creating a photo project that takes an honest look at the lives of people with disabilities. Not the “struggles” not the “inspirations” not the “successes” but their lives and what they deal with - good, bad, and indifferent.
Please give it a follow! And if you are a person with a disability, please submit photos, stories, and questions.
If you are a person with a disability or know of persons with disabilities who are involved in arts accessibility, if you are involved in the arts, improvement of the arts, accessibility of the arts, etc - HEADS UP. The New Performing Arts Center design is about to be unveiled and the council is looking for representatives from the disability community to participate in the conversation! Thanks!

The Utah Legislative Coalition for People with Disabilities (LCPD) is hosting a reception for State Senators and Representatives on February 7th at the Utah State Capitol Rotunda. ALL Senators and Representatives are invited to come and talk with professionals and consumers of services, but we need to make sure that these legislators see the need for the funds they appropriate.
This reception is open to the public, free, and your chance to talk to your legislators. For more information, contact me (Shauna Brock) at the Utah Independent Living Center 801-466-5565 or you can put a message in my ask.
To find out who your state legislator is, you can visit le.utah.gov. Drop them a personal message, invite them again, put a face on your issues!
