According to the 2010 U.S. Census, over 22% of Americans have a "disability" (as defined below).  Similar statistics obtain in every industrialized nation worldwide.  Current U.S. projections are that the population percentage of Americans "with disabilities severe enough to impair their [our] accomplishment of major life activities" will increase to about TWENTY-FIVE PERCENT by the year 2020.  It is quite likely that you (or someone you know) may have a "disability" by that time, if not already.  This DISABILITY STUDIES WEBRING brings together web sites that contain articles, essays, papers, discussion and/or other information in support of disability rights, the independent living movement, and community living.  The more you KNOW, the more you can DO.  We encourage you to VISIT EVERY SITE in this webring.  Here you will find a collection of truly outstanding and informative resources that will greatly expand your understanding of both "disability issues" and also of a multitude of intensely personal aspects of living with a "disability" such as you are unlikely to find elsewhere.  Learn and grow stronger!!!
