Power Changers

  We went to a disability hate crime event at Mariners Resource Centre in Leeds.

 

Kick Ass Maracas

 Bullying is bad and wrong! On this day disabled people had a chance to learn more about it and how to get help.

 I went to a workshop about bullying and hate crime, there was a superhero called a Power Changer!

 

Annabel asks what a Power Changer is

A Power Changer has disability pride

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Power Changer is someone who has disability pride – this means they agree that disabled people are strong, beautiful and handsome. We have a lot to offer in our communities.  

 

So do you think a superhero will come and save me if I am being bullied?

 Well, we know that in real life a superhero won’t stop us from being bullied! But there are things we can do to get help and we learnt about that in the workshop.

Being a power changer is all about giving more power to disabled people so that we can speak up for our rights.

 I heard that there are more workshops for disabled people, go to the CHANGE website if you want to find out more.
