This is #CPChatNow co-host, Devin Axtman, taking you along for the ride on this week’s recap. Members discussed walking, their strategy when leaving big events, and people without disabilities showing their privilege. All aboard!
First, Stephen brought up the exciting fact that he is walking again and the independence it allows him to feel. Zach and I discussed how mobility devices can also lead to feelings of independence.
Chris tweeted about her goals to be more active:
Next, members discussed a common issue that people with CP and other issues face, deciding to leave events early to beat the crowd or stay later after people had left to allow the crowd to disperse.
Finally, Stephen brought up that he feels that people without disabilities do not always check their privilege. Chris and I discussed what we felt were examples of this during the pandemic.
This brings us to our Extend-The-Conversation Question: What are some ways you feel people without disabilities have privilege? Please share your answers in the comments and join us tomorrow at 8 Eastern on #CPChatNow.
