We went to a disability hate crime event at Mariners Resource Centre in Leeds.
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!
What is a Power Changer?
Anyone can be a Power Changer!
A Power Changer is someone who agrees that bullying disabled people is wrong and should be stopped.
A Power Changer is someone who speaks out about our human rights, disability hate crime and equal rights.
A Power Changer agrees that disabled people should be respected.
A Power Changer is someone who agrees it is good to ask for help if they are being bullied.
A Power Changer is someone who supports disabled people who have been bullied.
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.
