9781891400261: We're the People Too:: Tales from America's Largest Minority

We're the People, Too: Tales from America's Largest Minority is a friendly attempt to enlighten and challenge not only the 54 million Americans with disabilities-but perhaps more importantly, citizens who are not disabled.

Here are sixteen tales of fighters and survivors, U.S. citizens hailing from California to New York, from Montana to Texas-citizens who have various physical or mental disabilities. From Dana who lost both legs in a skydiving accident to Shawna who ran the "medical specialists" gauntlet before happening on a diagnosis-these stories will amaze, touch and inspire you. Each story looks at an individual and his or her respective disability, considering the particular situation from various angles-social, economic, political and, of course, personal.

We're the People, Too is meant to challenge people to not only learn, but to be motivated toward engaging their peers-peers who just happen to be disabled.

About the Author:

Walt Dudley Itrich lives in Dickinson, North Dakota where he is active in the disability-rights movement and writes frequently about that issue, as well as non-serious concerns.

Review:

"...communicated the history and essence of the disability movement brilliantly by telling the story of real people doing real things." -- Justin Dart, Jr; National disabilities-rights leader

"Mr. Itrich provides a view, not of individuals who are disabled, but of the true meaning of living." -- Kent Conrad, United States Senator

"Walt Itrich's collection of real-life stories will move readers and hopefully inspire change in the way the world views disabilities." -- U.S. Senator Byron Dorgan of North Dakota.
