May 1st 2017
This is the day where all around the world, disabled and non-disabled people blog about their experiences, observations and thoughts about disability discrimination (known as disablism or ableism). In this way, we hope to raise awareness of inequality, promote equality and celebrate the progress we've made.
It is now May 2nd, but if you have a post and have not yet done so please leave a comment below to let us know about your contributions - anything in the next few days will be fine. We'll be putting together an archive of all our posts which you can check out here, as well as tweeting about them @BADDtweets and linking to them on our Facebook page and Tumblr.
Blogging Against Disablism Day has taken place every May 1st since 2006. You can see our archives here: 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014,
