"Brightly illustrated and with a helpful glossary, We Move Together is a sensitive and joyful jumping-off point to begin the vital conversation about accessibility." —Saleema Nawaz, author of Songs for the End of the World
"We Move Together is a love letter to the next generation of disabled kids, and a provocation for their nondisabled peers to rethink an ableist society's assumptions about how our bodies should move, what they should look like, and how our brains should work ... This gorgeously illustrated book offers a powerful message rooted in the Disability Justice movement—we care for and love each other, and we move together, with nobody left behind." —Lydia X. Z. Brown, disability justice advocate and founder/director of Fund for Community Reparations for Autistic People of Color's Interdependence, Survival, & Empowerment
"We Move Together is full of gorgeous illustrations and stories of our communities in all of their varied differences. Rooted in disability justice, this book offers ways of practicing interdependence, collective care, and transformative justice. As a Black, Mad, and disabled parent, I am eager to read this book in our family—finally a book in which we can see ourselves reflected! We Move Together is essential reading for all bookshelves!" —Syrus Marcus Ware, Co-Founder, Black Lives Matter–Canada
"We Move Together makes me want to move with joy! Finally there is a book I can share with my kiddo that expresses the joy of disability community; the playfulness of different ways of moving; and the fun of creating access—while also showing the challenges of ableism. This book can grow with my daughter as she goes from asking questions about the beautifully illustrated pictures and engaging words, to when she can grapple with the many key ideas of disability justice provided at the end of the book. A delightful and much needed celebration of disability community, and most importantly, as my daughter says, it's fun! " —Sunaura Taylor, disability studies scholar and author of Beasts of Burden
