Welcome to February 2023. It’s Valentine’s Day on the 14th and
Pink Shirt Day on the 22nd, so we wanted to focus on love and
anti–bullying. When we focus on love, for ourselves and others,
it helps us to connect. We are less likely to see our differences
and we are more likely to accept others for who they are.
Because the media can play such a big role in helping people to
learn about anti–bullying and how to create a better world for
those with diverse abilities, we are sharing a lot of articles about the importance of
media representation. Disability representation in the media helps to
raise awareness about diversity. It helps to reduce bullying stigma, and
discrimination. Representation matters and media is a powerful
tool for representation of people with all kinds of diversity.
When we take the time to learn about people, we have a better
understanding of each other. People can be more respected and
included in everyday society.
We hope you enjoy this month’s articles. We’d love to hear
what you think about media representation or any of the other
stories you see here.
Please feel free to give feedback or thoughts to keep making the newsletter
interesting and fun for everyone to read.
