Webinar: Let’s Talk with Dave Hingsburger and John Raffaele: I am Not Your Inspiration

Jul 13, 2021 | Webinars

Dave Hingsburger and John Raffaele will have a conversation about the important message from the late, great Stella Young. Stella, an Australian woman with a disability discussed that she is not to be used for inspiration due to her disability. Her famous TED Talk will set the stage for a lively and important discussion about how language matters when discussing disability. We will also define, rebuke and discuss “Inspiration Porn”. Dave and John will share how damaging and ultimately “ableist” it is to see people with disabilities as inspirational and heroic solely based on having disability.
