Hi, I’m Liz

I am The Girl with the Purple Cane.

I created The Disabled List to harness the intuitive creativity disabled people cultivate by navigating a world that isn’t built for our bodies.

I support brands who are interested in reaching disabled consumers.

I advocate alongside my peers to shift the disability narrative.

And I strive every day to build pathways into design for disabled people.

Disability Scoop

New Mobility

http://www.newmobility.com/

New Mobility covers active wheelchair lifestyle with articles on recreation, travel, people, health, relationships, media, culture, civil rights and resources. Eighty-five percent of our readers have disabilities, most caused by spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, post-polio syndrome, cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy.

We tell stories directly and honestly, without sentimentality. We aren’t interested in “courageous” or “inspiring” tales of  “overcoming disability.”

The DVP is also a community partnership with StoryCorps, a national oral history organization. Our aim is to create disabled media that is intersectional, multi-modal, and accessible.
