Forum 9.2 - Advocating for Persons with Disabilities and their Families

Read Mark 2:1-12 in your personal Bible or here online.  Sometimes we are called to be like the four friends who carried their friend with a disability, advocating for him to have his audience with Jesus is very active ways.  They recognized their friend would not be able to reach Jesus without their support.

What are ways that people with disabilities face discrimination and disadvantage?  How are families and long-term care providers similarly impacted? How can your faith community make a difference?  What role does advocacy play?

Each student should write their own post to answer the questions above, as well as offering comments and questions to at least two other people's posts.  [10 points available, 5 for your post, 5 for two or more responses to others]
