Stamma, the British Stammering Association, is calling on media organisations around the world to ensure that on television and on the radio we hear people who stammer.
Not just when the subject of stammering comes up, but throughout the year, every year. Stamma explains the campaign and what you can do at No diversity without dysfluency (stamma.org).
Sign the campaign’s petition “No diversity without dysfluency” (change.org).
The campaign is part of International Stammering Awareness Day (ISAD), which is on 22nd October. For ISAD this year Stamma is also running:
- a discussion “Stammering in the media” (stamma.org) with Scroobius Pip, at 6:30pm on 22nd October (via Zoom)
- a 45-minute Diversity & inclusivity workshop (stamma.org) at 1:15pm on the 22nd, aimed at people working within Diversity & Inclusion or leadership roles within their organisations, and
- a fighting fund (stamma.org).
