Patrick Taking a Picture of the person taking his picture.

TRIPIL respects the power of the media: journalists, photographers, bloggers, and editors are in a unique position to shape the public image of people with disabilities.

We are dedicated to increasing the awareness of people-first language and assisting in avoiding negative (and positive!) stigmas when communicating stories about people with disabilities.

Quick Suggestions for Respectful Reporting

It's important for all of us to be aware that it's better to convey a positive, objective view of an individual instead of a negative, insensitive image.
