Reveca Torres, Backbones, reinventing the wheel

Backbones is a site with resources for people living with disabilities such as spinal chord injuries. These people appreciate being included, invite them to events, make sure your facilities and events are accessible to people with disabilities. Don’t leave anyone out! Don’t do it because if you don’t you could get sued, do it because you are human and they are human and everyone has something to contribute.
REINVENTING THE WHEEL is an art show featuring people who live in wheelchairs living their lives. Being athletes, poets, artists, lovers, humans! I know it’s cliche to call such art “inspirational,” but it was an honest, beautiful show. Reveca Torres told us her life story and how she’s been able to be a fashion designer despite her disability.
