Our Goals

AMPLIFY! Justice Collaboration This illustration is a collaboration between Jerron Herman, dancer and Ryan Hartley Smith, graphic designer for AMPLIFY! Justice. In Ryan's words, "there are dots and cosmic-like splotches in the upper right hand corner that are connected by diagrammatic lines which loosely wrap around the arm of the dancer, and perhaps are in his gaze. Are these points on a map, the constellations, a dance diagram, organic improvisation or something else?"

Advocate

We work together to shift the disability narrative. Disabled people are rarely seen as experts in disability. We’re here to change that.

Collaborate

The Disabled List supports brands who are interested in targeting consumers who identify as disabled. We are available to collaborate, consult and help you understand who we are and what we want.

Build

Disabled people are the original lifehackers. Our lives are spent cultivating an intuitive creativity, because we navigate a world that isn’t built for our bodies. We believe in the innovative value of this skillset, which is why we are building pathways into design for disabled people.
