A collection of disabled Canadians sharing why disabled lives have value. In short videos, you can watch the contrast between their medical diagnosis and their real lives. The initiative is aimed at counter-balancing discussions in Canada about doctor-assisted suicide. The campaign's creators say they worry that Canadians are only getting one side of the disability story – that death is a natural choice for these poor suffering disabled people. But this story doesn’t speak to the experiences of many with disabilities.

DISABILITY VISIBILITY PROJECT
Created by American activist Alice Wong, the Disability Visibility Project (DVP)™ is an online community dedicated to recording, amplifying, and sharing disability stories and culture. DVP's aim is to create disabled media that is intersectional, multi-modal and cross-platform.
Alice Wong talks about ableism and representation of people with disabilities in the media for NBC's Life Stories series:
"I think people with disabilities really challenge the idea of what is 'normal' and what is 'diversity.' -Alice Wong
Scope, from the UK, is a charity that exists to make the country a place where disabled people have the same opportunities as everyone else. Until then, they say, "we’ll be here".
