Please Support Krip-Hop Nation's South Africa Tour Nov-Dec 10th Disability Awareness Month in S.A

Hello Friends & Supporters

It all started when I was in my early teens. I told my mom that I wanted to go to South Africa in the middle of the US anti-Aparthied movement in which my father and I was apart of. In my high school years I tried to do a paper on what was going on in South Africa for people with disabilities/Deaf and remember this was in the mid 80's before computers. My paper turned out to be a half a page cause I couldn't find enough information on people with disabilities/Deaf in South Africa at that time.

Update from Julius Shemang in Kaduna State Nigeria

Dear Leroy and Poor Magazine,
 
Greeting from Kaduna State Nigeria.
 
This is to share with you some pictures of the newly inaugurated Board Members of the Kaduna State Rehabilitation Board headquarter on the 5th August 2016.
 
I was opted into the Board as Member. This, I believe will be another platform for us to further press home our demand for the passage of the disability bill with commission.
 

Yes, It Goes Deeper Than Training, Police Shooting Arnaldo Rios Soto Interview with Matthew Dietz, Attorney for the Family of Arnaldo Rios Soto

I watched the police shoot another black man, while aiming at an autistic man of color. You’ve probably seen it on Google. I watched it as a Black disabled activist that has reported on police brutality cases since the late 80’s. I watched them shoot Charles Kinsey as he tried to calm down Arnaldo Eliud Rios Soto as he held a small toy truck in his hands. The neighbors assumed the toy truck was a gun and called the police. The police came. Shoot the black social worker on the scene, and said they meant to hit the autistic man with the toy.

 

Autistic Teenagers & Young Adults In Hotter Than July: Police Brutality

Stevie Wonder’s title of his September 28th, 1980 album, Hotter Than July can describe what teenagers & young adults with autism are feeling this year. Although we celebrated the 26th birthday of the Americans with Disabilities Act; it’s been very hot for teens & young adults with autism in cities all over the US not because of the Summer sun but because of police shootings/brutality from Miami, FL to Chicago, ILL to San Francisco & Burbank, CA against them.

From Writing Hip-Hop Lyrics to Activism to Motherhood, Heather Waltkins Shares Common Experiences & More

I’ve been in San Francisco, CA since 1991 but I’m originally from New York//CT.  People call the Bay area the bubble and I agree with the nice weather, what used to be liberalism, all year around vegetables and fruits you can get spoiled or think that this is the only place to live.
