In this interview with guest Arielle Gantt, you will learn five powerful ways to be a better disability ally.
Arielle is an Adapted Physical Education Teacher, a mental health advocate, and an experienced caretaker for members of the disability community. She’s also someone that I admire for her knowledge in the area of disability allyship and a person that I personally go to for advice.
Allyship means acting in solidarity with a group of people who may be systemically disempowered and amplifying their cause, which makes this an important topic for all of us.
The disability community, like all communities, is diverse in nature. However, there are some overarching principles that you can effectively use to be a better ally to most members within it. For this reason, I’m grateful to my friend and guest, Arielle Gantt, for sharing her professional and personal expertise on this topic.
