My Home My Rights

My Home, My Rights videos exploring disability rights and imagining disability justice

My Home, My Rights is a participatory action research team working on disability rights.  Our core members are people with intellectual disabilities and other disabilities. 

Each of us learns and communicates differently. We don’t find learning difficult; we just learn in different ways.   

We are part of an international movement for disability justice.

My Home My Rights made three videos exploring disability rights and imagining disability justice:

  1. The Right to Decide: On the right to choose where, with whom and how we live.  
  2. House Rules: On the difference between disability support and institutional control.  
  3. Social Assistance – On accessing social assistance and full community inclusion. 

We hope you like our videos which showcase the six core My Home My Rights members: Conar Clory, Isai Estey, Chantel Meister, Melly Thompson, Simon Snyder and Jenn Walters.
