Please WATCH “What is a Disability” by Koko Thomas Koko Thomas, MS, MPA, BSW

“I’m Korian “Koko” DeMont Thomas and Black Gay DeafBlind male.

It is important to have awareness about disability. 

The definition of disability is a person who experiences life with barriers. There are many factors that impact how a person experiences systematic oppression, racism, gender-discrimination and other -isms when expressing their clear and specific accessibility needs (communication and media). In organizational employment, for example, a person may not be offered equal benefits because of their diverse background. Also, it is important to be aware when those who set barriers against another person are also disabled. Empathic listening and learning are vital to provide accessibility. We, people, have diverse cultural backgrounds including types of communication”.
