I love this paper my disability department gave me. The representative also told me to report ANY kind of ableism, even if it seems minuscule to me.
The top three are hard to read so:
Disability accommodations are rights, not special help. (Ask for what you need. Advocate for yourself.)
You are an important and valuable part of campus diversity. (Diversity includes disability.)
College disability services officers can be gatekeepers. (Most are good allies for students, but some are not. Demand professional, individualized, respectful services and file a complaint if you don’t get them.)

(continued)
4. Feed your soul and your body - recharge your batteries. (Balance your valuable time, energy, and health)
5. Stay focused on your career. (if it won’t help you get a job or maintain your passion for college, don’t bother)
6. Find a community. (Never go at it alone. Consider connecting with others who have disabilities)
7. Universally design your own learning. (Learn how you learn best, and then use your strengths and unique learning style)
8. Never apologize for your disability or your accommodations. (If you apologize, people may think you’re ashamed.)
9. Fight oppression and bullying in any form. (Ableism is just one “ism.” If one of us is oppressed, all of us are oppressed.) 
10. Learn disability history. (Learn about the people and movements that made it possible for you to be in college.)

These things actually permeate your brain and plant little seeds that people then carry around with them and influence how they behave. And it’s so important to analyze this, especially when you have an audience of MILLIONS.

This Icelandic police force has the most adorable Instagram account 

Meet the Reykjavík Metropolitan Police, serving the capital of Iceland. By the looks of their incredible Instagram account, a normal day includes holding kittens, eating candy and wearing false mustaches.

There’s more where those came from | Follow micdotcom

For the record the Icelandic police are probably the best police force in the world, There has only been one instance where an officer shot and killed a civilian in the entire history of the country (which is nearly a hundred years) and everyone was completely devastated by it, the police especially — because, as made clear in their statements after the incident, they understand their function is to protect the people. Not to mention that their general police go unarmed except for special squads.

Let’s run through some more facts while we’re on the subject: Compared to 31,000+ shooting deaths in the US in 2009, Iceland had… 4, because they have very rigorous screening processes for gun permits. There is very little economic disparity between upper, middle and lower classes, and social welfare programs take care of their people. Drug use affects less than 1% of the population between 15 and 65 years old, and 90% of drug-related court cases are settled with a fine rather than jail time. Violent crime is virtually non-existent. [x]

Iceland is like if you took the entire idea of chill and personified it as an country, and this exemplifies that. 

I want to go there 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍
