We are actively looking for writers, opinion leaders, articles from people who are working within disability and are passionate about advocating, transforming the dialogue around disability. We encourage anyone who has new thinking in this field. Particularly in looking at releasing the talent pool of people with disability that are actually trapped by societal and cultural perceptions of what they can and cannot do. We are looking for thoughts on new technology, policy and much more that would provide freedom, opportunity and security to the 650 million people who have some sort of disability.
