The Fall 2009 ADAPT Blogswarm

From Nick Dupree:

ADAPT will be in Atlanta, October 10-15, demanding the end of unjust segregation of people with disabilities. Read ADAPT’s page on the action here.

You can help raise awareness around the Fall National Action by blogging!

The ADAPT Blogswarm


  1. Post a comment here to say you intend to join in with a post on your blog. He will then add you to the list of participants. All are welcome.
  2. Write a blog post on either: ablist and unjust institutionalization, lack of community-based services, long-term care reform, the Olmstead decision, ADAPT, and/or the Fall Action, and publish it on your blog before October 12th – or as close as you are able. Podcasts or videocasts are also accepted. Any posts about the topic are welcome, regardless of your background, disability, or your blog’s typical scope.
  3. To add your blog post to the ’swarm, comment or email Nick a link to the post (to before or on October 12th. Then he'll list it as part of the blogswarm.
  4. Spread the word by linking to Nick, displaying a logo [below, click to view larger] and telling everyone about it. The entire success of the blogswarm depends entirely on bloggers telling other bloggers and readers in advance.

A blogswarm is like a blog carnival on a larger scale, where as many as hundreds of bloggers (as opposed to 10s like in a carnival) commit to blogging on a certain topic on a certain day, usually in hopes of gaining mainstream media attention. Here is the Anti-telethon Blogswarm (Kara, please update your blog) & DUH City & of course the ever popular blogging against disablism day 09.

Also, here is a video of ADAPT Atlanta 1990:
