Allies: the Theme of the 33rd Disability Blog Carnival

Ruth has put together the 33rd (WOW!) Disability Blog Carnival and it is now available on her blog, WHEELIE CATHOLIC.  Borrowing from Ruth:

"The theme of this carnival is "Appreciating Allies". So, what and who are allies? Wikipedia says
that " those who share a common goal and whose work toward that goal is
complementary may be viewed as allies for various purposes even when no
explicit agreement has been worked out between them."

Ruth
pointed out that there are opportunities for those of us in the
disability community to act as allies. In so doing, she was kind enough
to mention Anna’s Pakman’s survey on Media Consumption and people with disabilities on her carnival.  According to Anna:

“the Nielsen ratings track media consumption for just about
every population EXCEPT our community so the only way I can get this
data is through your assistance. All individual survey responses are
anonymous and will be kept strictly confidential.”

This
is a perfect opportunity to say "thanks" to all ALLIES who in one way
or the other support our efforts. And a special thanks to Ruth.  We are
fortunate to consider her an ally, as are many others.  Of that we have
no doubt.
