Share Your Story

Do you have a story about facing discrimination, retaliation, or belittlement at Disability Network West Michigan (formerly Disability Connection West Michigan – Muskegon’s Center for Independent Living)?

We’d love to publish it! We’re starting a series called Discrimination:Documented, which will feature the stories of real Muskegonites with disabilities and their interactions with our Center for Independent Living.

You can share your story anonymously or include your name and photo. Your story will be more powerful if you include some details about yourself.

Please note: we are not an oversight agency. We are a group of advocates relying on Independent Living’s founding principles of peer support, consumer control, and advocacy in order to bring about change in our community.

If you’d like to share a story of discrimination at another Michigan Center for Independent Living, we will collect, review, and consider those for publication as well.

To submit your story, use our online form or email
