Dr. Jackline Lidubwi (Internews Network) identifies digital self-advocacy strategies for persons with disabilities. She explains how mainstream media hardly features stories of People with Disabilities, and when they are featured, the stories are not framed in inclusive ways. Social media has the potential to be a game changer for the portrayal of People with Disabilities. However, access to social media remains a challenge to many Africans with disabilities. In addition, People with Disabilities have not taken full advantage of social media for self advocacy.
