The Unfinished Disability Utopia, Berkeley Police & Americans with Disability Act Pushed By Kayla Moore, Transgender Disabled Woman of Color

 
Death Rumors
By Kayla Moore
 
Someone is calling the beast.
He is summoning me.
All he does is call.
I just want to be free.
Black death and the sight
of blood so cold,
my life sounds really short,
the scent of death
which smells real old,
pictures of old buildings
and forts
Must I suffer to this thing
we fear?

The Responses To Krip-Hop's Track SSI Dollarz By Men In San Bruno Jail

Back in the late 90's I and Lisa Tiny Gray-Garcia​ had the honor to present our work in San Bruno jail.  In July of 2017 I had another opportunity to present  my work, this time, Krip-Hop Nation under Poetry For the People's teacher Amalia Alvarez​. The men responded great to the videos, songs and talk all about Black disabled issues from Hip-Hop to police brutality but the spark was the song by Keith Jones​ and I entitled SSI Dollarz.  We ended the class by writing what they thought of the presentation and a cypher.

We walk back and forth in a jail-cel everyday -its called your doorways
tent cities
Bus benches
and Metal chairs in the emergency room
waiting to be seen…
excerpt from the PoorHouse to the JailHouse by tiny

“Prison abolition is different than penal abolition- we don’t just want to get rid of the structures- we want to get rid of the whole system that functions to destroy people, said Ashanti Alston, Black Panther and penal abolitionist.

July is ADA Month However When It Comes to Police ADA Means?

Back in the 90's a group of us in the Bay Area, Idriss Stelley Foundation (ISF), POOR Magazine, Disability Advocates of Minorities Org, DAMO, Caduceus, Coalition on Homelessness and the San Francisco Bay View Newspaper got tired of seeing  more and more police shooting of Black & Brown disabled people.  We held rallies, open forums and talked to our political leaders but it kept on going on.   We realized back then that nobody were  collecting data on this issue except a very few activists.
