I'm collating responses about disability hate speech and so I've created a short survey.
If you've experienced this as a disabled person, or carer then I would be very grateful if you could complete this short survey.

Many people use disability hate speech everyday, sometimes unthinkingly, sometimes not, but as there is currently no protection under the hate speech laws as they stand, as a crime in and of itself, then the situation will continue unless addressed.
Free speech must be defended. All I'm asking for is an amendment to the current hate speech laws to ensure that disabled people, many of whom are the most vulnerable people in society, have same rights and protections as any other targeted group.
Currently they don't.
