Never forget: Roe v. Wade wasn’t the beginning of abortion in America. It was the beginning of the end of illegal abortions. If you haven’t read this piece before, I highly recommend it.
Disabled Parking Bay Abuse Protest
Wheelchair users found an original way to protest the abuse of disabled parking bays in Lisbon, Portugal. Weekenders that day (November 11) who attempted to park their car in a normal parking space outdoor Saldanha, Lisbon, saw all the usual places occupied by a wheelchair.
Wheelchairs had written messages on the back with messages like “I’ll be back in 10 minutes”, “I won’t be long” or “I’m just having a coffee”, the usual justifications for those not experiencing any physical limitation, who park their cars in places reserved for disabled people.
Similar initiatives were carried out in the city of Vila Real (Portugal, in photographs) as well as in Boa Vista on Avenida Jaime Brazil, the National Day of Struggle for the Disabled.
Here are 10 photos (out of 22) from my series Racial Microaggressions. I have asked my friends on the Fordham University Lincoln Center campus to write down an instance of racial microaggression they have faced on a poster for me to take a picture of them.
