Let’s be honest, most people still get uncomfortable around disabled people. Worse, society’s attitudes can be even more disabling than the actual disability. In this era of social justice...
ISN'T IT TIME TO END BIAS AGAINST THE WORLD'S LARGEST MINORITY?
We’re bringing disability up to date through a powerful new film about a quadriplegic woman who gave birth to twins during the pandemic. Told through the lens of Daniela Izzie’s perilous but joyful journey to motherhood, our film will offer intimate access into the world of disabled pregnancy and adaptive parenting, while examining issues that negatively impact those with disabilities. Dani’s story is universal, one that any person can relate to.
DANI'S VISION FOR NORMALIZING DISABILITY
THIS IS MORE THAN JUST A FILM
This is a movement to reshape the disability narrative, challenge ingrained biases and #NormalizeDisability. JOIN US!
1. With your help, we’ll finish DANI’S TWINS film and get it out to the world (filming is complete; we’re editing now). Learn more on our website . Watch clips on our YouTube channel .
2. Help us advocate for better representation. The media depicts people with disabilities with stereotypes like pity and heroism, and casts nondisabled people in disabled roles. When was the last time you saw a disabled mom on TV? Help us change that.
3. Help us record and distribute Dani’s conversations with dozens of diverse disabled moms (and dads) from around the world. If you know a disabled parent with something to say, message us to be part of the series.
