Nila Morton, a member of the Rho Zeta Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., recently shot a powerful video on ways to truly show respect for people with disabilities.
She captured this video to speak about her life experiences as a disabled college student, and her thoughts on what society’s perception of her is.
The intent of the video is to educate people about how to approach people with disabilities, and break those stereotypes that society has about people with disabilities. At the end of the day we are all human and our ableism’s and disabilities shouldn’t define us.
Nila does an excellent job of creating scenarios in which you have to step outside of your typical thought process, and really reflect. Weekly routines and activities that we all have can be made awkward or uncomfortable by a person’s lack of respect, awareness, or genuine care.
Nila really conveyed the message that people with disabilities are capable, competent, and most importantly human beings with emotions.
Human beings that do not want pity, just genuine respect in all aspects of life.
We urge you to take a few minutes out of your day and watch this video. Reflect on ways you can improve your general behavior towards ALL fellow human beings. Causing divisiveness is not something we should be encouraging or practicing in our lives.
