    Think CSUN: A Bill of Rights for Deaf Children

    (Sound of a light bulb rolling across the floor, with music playing in the background) Yeah, “-isms” are everywhere. Sexism, racism, or ageism. Or discrimination against people who are disabled; they call that ability-ism. Discrimination against people who don’t hear; we call that audism. That’s everywhere. And again, when you become friends with a person, or you work together with them, then the resistance decreases. Deaf babies are born with all of the capabilities, the potential in life, if they have full access to information, communication, family language, especially language. The United Nations has a convention on human rights, for people with disabilities. And it includes the right to sign…

    Jeremy Corbyn – Calais camp, Dubs amendment

    The situation in Calais is quite desperate. Unaccompanied children looking for some place of safety, adults displaced because of wars across the world. The Dubs Amendment which was put through the British parliament requires the British government to give place to at least 3,000 unaccompanied children. It must happen, and it most happen now. Otherwise those children will be homeless, will have no support whatsoever, and will become the victims of the most appalling criminal gangs across Europe. Sign the Dubs Amendment support now, send a message to the government. I’ve done the same, everybody should do the same. Give those children a place of safety.

    What is a human right?

    What is it? What is a Human Right? From the start of our lives, because we are human beings, there are certain things our governments must do to help us reach our potential. These expectations and claims we have of our governments are called human rights. Every single man, woman, and child has them. How does it work? Rights call on governments to: Respect – avoid putting limits on some things that a person can do. Protect – safeguard a person from abuse. Fulfil – to provide basic conditions to enable a person to achieve their potential. The most basic minimum human rights standards have been discussed and written down…

    Oklahoma’s Blaine Amendment targets children with disabilities

    Jane: “You know I have a school counselor saying we’re a top grade school, there’s no bullying here, this isn’t happening here. And I have a kid telling me at home, I just wish I was dead.” Curtis: “Just because a child has a disability, whatever it is, doesn’t mean they’re stupid.” I was shocked that this thing still exists. It’s a 200-year-old rule. And basically it was to discriminate against Catholics. Wyatt was born 3 months early. And the doctor told me, he goes I don’t think he’s going to make it. I was constantly getting notes home from his kindergarten teacher that he wasn’t listening in class And…
