NDRN is proud to celebrate Black History Month 2020! Join us each day throughout February to recognize the remarkable contributions of past and present Black disability rights advocates and attorneys. Each day will feature a different profile via social media of a Black advocate or attorney who has previously influenced disability rights or who is currently making an impact in their communities. The series will also highlight Black youth who aspire to reimagine disability rights in ways reflective of their dreams for a more inclusive and intersectional future.
Fill out the submission form below for someone you think should be featured in our Disability Rights In Black Series!
With this series, chosen nominees will be celebrated via social media and may later be asked to submit a picture as well as a two-minute video/brief quote exemplifying their efforts. We may also request that nominators of deceased candidates contribute a short video or message expressing how the nominee has influenced them personally and disability rights more widely.
Although this series is primarily designed to center the contributions of Black people with disabilities, Black nominees without disabilities who have made an impact on disability rights will also be carefully considered.
Please note, nominees will be selected based on the quality of your nomination not how many nomination forms are submitted.
