A young black woman looks thoughtfully at the camera. Her lips and a spot under her nose are light pink from vitiligo.

Visibility is being vocal about what it’s like to live with disabilities. I’ve helped so many people feel comfortable being themselves. If I didn’t share my experience, none of that would have happened. It’s all because I decided to talk about it. Litty Ligo’s concept is: you are not alone, and there is no one right way to heal. I just want to make sure this is an inclusive space of healing. You are not your vitiligo.

This Is Me

In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, we present the This Is Me exhibit. This Is Me amplifies the voices of individuals living with disabilities and chronic health conditions, caregivers and disability rights activists.
