Limitless: Breaking the bounds of disability
“We are aware of what we can achieve. We simply need for people who are not disabled to understand and appreciate what we can offer and what we can do, and to simply give us a chance.”
— Justice Richard Bernstein, Michigan State Supreme Court.
Equal access to education, jobs and public spaces continue to be ongoing challenges for individuals living with disabilities. In order to better understand these issues, we challenged our student journalists to find stories that showcase how people with disabilities overcome limits placed on them by doctors, teachers, family and cultural norms. The result is “Limitless: Breaking the bounds of disability,” a series that reveals the ways in which youth and adults with special needs rise above challenging circumstances to exceed expectations and advocate for everyone’s vital contributions to society.
