We are immediately seeking volunteers to assist in reaching out to living locations to identify availability to support survivors of violence in relocating.

Tasks are simple, links to locations already compiled, & we will provide you with a script to help you know what to say on the phone or in an email exchange.

You can help us save lives right away by dedicating a half hour at a time to providing this network assistance.

Please contact @maxmorris with questions or for volunteer onboarding.

Thank you for sharing this message as widely as possible & telling us what you need in order to participate.

Q. How has Intuitive community changed your outcomes in caregiving?

Max writes:

I am a severely disabled survivor of severe trauma.

Most public support resources exclude me β€” they don't know what to do with me.

Countless services and organizations have had no answer for me when I ask them what to do β€” for myself, my family, and for many others.

Survivors like me and families like mine need effective communications support and practical resource assistance in order to solve problems, stabilize, and recover health after trauma.

Because of the many, diverse, and unique challenges that emerge from compounded trauma, situational solutions are crucial to success for suffering families and communities.

Without the resources Intuitive has shared, my family and I could not communicate or survive together. This meant brutal additional pain, confusion, fear, stress, and illness for all of us until recently, especially because I am not the only severely disabled person in my immediate family.

After many years of threat to life and health, and of my mother struggling as caregiver for both my and my father's very different, complex health challenges, we have new and better strategies for supporting one another effectively.

These strategies are working for us now even in the most chaotic (scary, messy, challenging) circumstances.

Intuitive provides coordination support that allows me to help care for my parents, helps others support my needs, and helps us rebuild healthy environments for our families and communities.

Our connection to Intuitive prevents further trauma, caregiver burnout, and premature death.

Intuitive helps us to address painful, scary, or complicated subjects more easily, aids us in problemsolving, and helps us to more successfully meet our needs.

We're healthier every day because of this, and deeply grateful.

Thank you.

"There was phenomenal and historic work to develop the disability rights movement in the U.S., and it had many successes in advancing a philosophy of independent living and opening possibilities for people with disabilities through the establishment of civil rights for people with disabilities. Like other movements, the current disability rights movement includes advocacy organizations, service provision agencies, constituency led centers, membership based national organizations, as well as cultural and academic spaces.

And, like many movements, it is contextualized within its era of emergence and left us with β€œcliff-hangers”: it is single issue identity based; its leadership has historically centered white experiences; its framework leaves out other forms of oppression and the ways in which privilege is leveraged at differing times and for various purposes; it centers people with mobility impairments, marginalizing other forms of impairment; and centers people who can achieve rights and access through a legal or rights-based framework. The political strategy of the disability rights movement relied on litigation and the establishment of a disability bureaucratic sector at the expense of developing a broad-based popular movement.

While a concrete and radical move forward toward justice, the disability rights movement simultaneously invisibilized the lives of peoples who lived at intersecting junctures of oppression – disabled people of color, immigrants with disabilities, queers with disabilities, trans and gender non-conforming people with disabilities, people with disabilities who are houseless, people with disabilities who are incarcerated, people with disabilities who have had their ancestral lands stolen, amongst others."

If you want trafficking to stop β€”> don't abandon your vulnerable β€”-> build community w/ severely affected survivors and take their lead β€”> make sure victims and survivors have safe supported places to go --> use @intuitivepublicradio toolsets EVERY DAY to strengthen and nourish your communities
It is overwhelmingly disabled, trans&non binary, neurodivergent people keeping me going. Emotionally and financially. Some of my most loyal supporters are all 3.
Most live from far less than 10.000 a year but they give to me because I got 0 government support, never had.
Also I can't forget the large donation from someone in SYRIA he said because he had food and I didn't at the time. This person was being bombed ffs and still helped.
So did you notice that emotionally and financially have the word ALLY in it? Where are my allies or the allies for my people?! When can we finALLY do what we are meant to be doing instead of begging for our human rights, our basics?
"For centuries, it has been common practice to dismiss people who were considered rabble-rousing as being mad. Women especially bore the brunt of these attitudes. During the Salem Witch Trials, the women hanged as witches were more likely to have epilepsy or dissenting views. In the 1800s, women who challenged the status quo were at risk of being declared insane and committed to a mental asylum. Their husbands, fathers and brothers were usually the ones to request institutionalisation, whereby an unruly woman would learn to submit to male authority. Many opinionated women were silenced in asylums." https://chronicallysiobhan.wordpress.com/2016/09/14/disability-and-gaslighting-when-being-disabled-makes-you-crazy β€’ https://t.me/Ideaschema/1779 β€’ https://t.me/IntuitivePublicRadio/8755
"Victims of human trafficking may develop disabilities from abuse at the hands of their traffickers, and individuals with disabilities may be targeted by traffickers because they are vulnerable. Many human trafficking task forces miss identifying this risk factor or fail to make provisions for people with disabilities. People with physical disabilities, cognitive or intellectual disabilities, sensory disabilities, and mental illnesses all need special attention and protection.

There are several factors that make people with disabilities vulnerable to trafficking.

People with disabilities often rely on others to meet their basic needs. These caregivers have opportunities to traffic them as a result.

People with disabilities may become submissive to their caregivers and comply with their caregivers’ wishes because they are so dependent upon them. This learned response makes the unequal power dynamic in relationship with a trafficker, even if the trafficker is abusive, seem normal.

People with disabilities may lead isolated lives and crave friendship and human connection. Because of this need, they may be persuaded to perform sexual acts if they are promised friendship or money as a reward. Isolation can also make it difficult or impossible for people with disabilities to make contact with people who could help them.

Some people with disabilities cannot speak clearly or require communication devices or interpreters to make their needs known, so they, also, cannot ask for help.

Because of the level of touching that accompanies intimate care and medical procedures, people with disabilities can become desensitized to touch and/or may be unsure about whether they have the right to object to and report unwanted touch, sexual abuse, and sexual acts. They lack information about and understanding of what constitutes a crime and what their rights are as victims of crimes. This is also true of trafficked workers.

People with disabilities may not be believed if they report abuse and violence. If they are believed and their cases are prosecuted, their abusers may be given shorter sentences than abusers of able-bodied people. Task forces should promote awareness of these trends when training service providers, police, prosecutors, and judges."

An important read: Epistemic Oppression and Ableism in Bioethics by Christine Wieseler

"In Ron Amundson’s words, the standard view of disability is β€œthat disabilities have very strong [negative] impacts on the quality of life of the individuals who have them” (Amundson 2005, 103).14 The standard view is closely related to what Reynolds refers to as β€œthe ableist conflation,” which equates β€œdisability with pain and suffering” (Reynolds
2017, 150). In spite of encountering empirical studies in which disabled people, on average, rated their own quality of life (QOL) as only slightly lower than nondisabled people ranked their own QOL (Bach and Tilton 1994; Nosek, Fuhrer, and Potter 1995; Albrecht and Devlieger 1999; Ubel, Loewenstein, and Jepson 2003; Goering 2008; Campbell and Stramondo 2017), many bioethicists continue to espouse the standard view of disability (Singer 1993; Buchanan et al. 2000; Daniels 2002; Brock 2005; McMahan 2005; Glover 2006; Davis 2009).

Amundson critiques bioethicists who take this approach, maintaining that their judgments about disability are shaped by social stigma and ignorance rather than objectivity (Amundson 2005, 110–13). When the standard view is treated as a value-free starting assumption, it centers what dominantly situated knowers believe and undermines the claims of disabled people about our own lives while making it difficult to draw attention to this epistemic harm.

As Amundson, Elizabeth Barnes, and Laura Cupples point out (Amundson 2005; Barnes 2016; Cupples 2020), disabled people are discredited as knowers when their testimony conflicts with the standard view (Nussbaum 2001; Brock 2005)."
