Protest Politics and the Disabled

Deng, Julia; Smith, Raymond Arthur

People with physical and mental impairments have earned increasing recognition as a coherent force in American politics during the last few decades, due largely to their effective use of political protest tactics. This issue brief outlines the progression of these tactics, describes the changing boundaries of the "disabled" community, and discusses the rights that various subgroups within this community have fought for.
