Anabaptist Disabilities Network creates Disability Language Guide

By Jeanne Davies and Hannah Thompson

The Anabaptist Disabilities Network announces the creation of a Disability Language Guide. This guide is meant to help us all carefully consider the language that we choose when writing and speaking about disability and people with disabilities. We hope you find it useful and share it with others.

The mission of the Anabaptist Disabilities Network (ADN) is to connect and support people who have disabilities, families, and faith communities to create a culture of belonging for everybody. Our vision: “Faith communities are transformed when individuals with disabilities and their God-given gifts and experiences enjoy full inclusion in the Body of Christ.”
