Summary
Founder of advocacy organization Diversability and creator of the viral Anti-Ableism Series on TikTok, Tiffany Yu takes readers on a revelatory examination of disability—how to unpack your biases and build a disability-inclusive and accessible world.

As the Asian American daughter of immigrants, living with PTSD and a permanent arm injury sustained at age nine, Tiffany Yu is well aware of the intersections of identity that affect us all. She navigated the male-dominated world of corporate finance as an investment banker at Goldman Sachs before founding Diversability, an award-winning community business run by disabled people building disability pride, power, and leadership.

Organized from the personal to the professional, the domestic to the political, the Me to the We to the Us, The Anti-Ableist Manifesto frames context for conversations, breaks down the language of ableism, identifies microaggressions, and proposes real actions that lead to genuine and authentic allyship. 
- How do we remove ableist language from our daily vocabulary?
- How do we create inclusive events?
- What are the advantages of hiring disabled employees, and what market opportunity are we missing out on when we don’t consider disabled consumers?

With contributions from disability advocates, activists, authors, entrepreneurs, scholars, educators, and executives, Yu celebrates the power of stories and lived experiences to foster the proximity, intimacy, and humanity of disability identities that have far too often been “othered” and rendered invisible. The Anti-Ableist Manifesto is an essential book for going beyond mere awareness and becoming an active anti-ableist working form a more equitable society for all.
