In the age of COVID-19, it has never been more apparent that disabled leadership and wisdom are critical to just futures.

This special issue began with a conversation among Disability Justice Network of Ontario (DJNO) organizers on how marginalized the disability justice movement is on the left. When we searched “disability” or “disabled” in many of our favourite independent outlets, at most a handful of results would pop up. Meanwhile, over 400,000 people in Canada have been disabled by long COVID. It was clear to us that there was a lot the left didn’t know about the disability justice movement in so-called Canada, as well as a lot that it could gain by listening.

The issue features writing and art from disability justice activists across the country. It takes readers through the history of the movement; present-day issues affecting disabled people like COVID, racism, institutionalization, poverty, war, and climate change; and envisions a future of joy, safety, and liberation for disabled people.
