Six Months In, Still Waiting for An Invitation to the Table

Disability Network West Michigan Board of Directors,

The actions you have taken over the past six months are in direct conflict with the values of the Independent Living Movement. You have shouted us down. You have told us that there is no such thing as a disability community. You have told us that we are not capable of creating change.

You have tried to scare us into compliance. You have tried to exclude us.

We are your consumers. You owe us an apology – and an invitation to the table.

We’re waiting.
