This blog is dedicated to my friends at the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. I have always been proud of the Society’s advocacy for public accessibility and transportation and the way that activists are able to effectuate change on a local level in the United States. I have created this photo blog to illustrate some of the differences between disability advocacy in the developed and developing world. Both BERDO and the National MS Society strive for full inclusion for persons with disabilities, but the challenges that both organizations face are distinct. When I look at these pictures, I imagine myself as a person that uses a wheelchair or has a visual impairment.
