Say It Out Loud.
In Australia, we do a lot of talking about disability.
But we don't always talk about the important things.
What it's like to live our lives.
What its like when people do things 'for' and 'to' us, not 'with' us.
What its like to have 'special' things for 'special people', instead of being part of the rest of Australia.
We want to talk about the things that matter. To us, not them.
We want to say it out loud.
And if they're not listening, we will say it louder.

Cartoon Description Three disabled people are sitting at the end of a large conference table. They represent a mixture of impairment, gender and cultural diversity. At the other end of the table are several men and women wearing business suits. Behind them is a white board on which a black male is writing ‘Consultation on ecotowns. Cheap, good quality …’. One of the business men is carrying a tray on which are several cups and saucers. He is saying to his colleagues whilst gesturing down the table at the disabled participants: "“Do you think they take sugar?!”"
