Why Respectful Disability Language Matters

An open letter signed by individuals and groups working to support and advocate for persons with disabilities, urged media representatives and politicians to use proper terminology when addressing persons with disabilities and disability-related issues. We discuss the importance of using inclusive and respectful language, and how it can empower the community.
