Stock Photo Sites for Inclusion

As a public speaker and writer, I am always looking for good photos for presentations and articles I write on this website. What do I mean by “good”? I look for images that reflect what I’m trying to say, add to the story, amplify the message. And I look for images that don’t perpetuate or contribute to stereotypes of what types of people do what types of activities. As a disability rights lawyer, I search for images of disabled people that are respectful and demonstrate that people with disabilities work and play like their non-disabled peers. I also look for pictures that reflect the racial diversity of disabled people. Far too many stock photo searches of “disability” turn up white patients, a vast majority of children, and other images that scream “not independent” The image I’ve chosen for this post is from Disabled and Here, a free stock photo site…
