Affect

Creating media campaigns & resources to amplify multiply-marginalized people and embody disability justice.

About


Affect is a grassroots, disability-led effort to amplify multiply marginalized folx and embody disability justice.

Affect began as Affect Conf, a community conference in Portland, Oregon, with both talks and group volunteering that ran annually from 2016-2018. Notable keynoters included Ijeoma Oluo, Sydette Harry, and Imani Gandy. In 2019, we shortened our name to Affect and launched our first media campaign, #DisabledAndHere. Disabled And Here celebrates disabled Black, Indigenous, people of color (BIPOC) and is a reclaiming of our depiction in media, with series of interviews and stock collections featuring images by and for us.
