Don't Dis My Ability Zine fundraiser

Kickstarter here PLEASE support this - these words need to get out and everyone who's read it LOVES it. I just have no more money to make any copies other then the ones that are already made.

A reminder of what you are supporting:

I will use the funds to make copies and distribute the zine far and wide. I want to put it in every info shop (activist bookstore) around North America and possibly every English speaking country around the world. This zine includes:

42 pages of awesome (plus cover)

(dis)Ability and Activism Zine Submission Deadline

I am doing a callout for submissions! DUE APRIL 30TH! PUBLICATION MAY 15TH!

I am putting together a print-zine about (dis)Abilities and the activist community. Your post can be about anything related to that topic, whether it has to do with your identity as an Activist with a (dis)Ability or difficulties fitting into your chosen activist scene (e.g. Earth First!) as an Activist with a (dis)Ability.

Possible topics:
Did you come to activism through your (dis)Ability?
Does your (dis)Ability make it harder for you to be taken seriously by people in your community?
Do you feel you have to teach people what life is like in your shoes?
Do you feel that you are by default a (dis)Ability Rights activist?

Angry

So Canada voted in a Conservative Majority despite what would be best for the country so I went to drown my sorrows in one of the two bars I frequent in town. Upon arrival I was told that I had to go outside because my dog was not allowed. I tried explaining that she was a service dog, even producing her papers which were pushed aside and not even glanced at, and firmly told that it didn't matter that they can refuse service to anyone. I asked if they would say the same if I were blind to which they replied again "we can refuse service to anyone." Read below the fold...
