Beyond Inclusion

As science and technology advance, genetic manipulation of our offspring is not outside the realm of possibility. But what are the ethics involved? More importantly, does a strive toward "normalcy" really help the human race?

Like all other living things on the planet, diversity makes us a stronger, more versatile population with greater capacity for empathy and innovation. In our rush to "cure" and "fix" and homogonize, we put that at risk. At a time when the concept of diversity is more valued and talked about than ever before, Deaf and disabled people remain left out.

Watch the Communication Services for the Deaf's (CSD) short film "Beyond Inclusion" and join the conversation on social media using the hashtags #beyondinclusion and #deconstructdisability.
