The Critical Axis logo embraces imperfection with its slightly askew matrix. The upper right, and more aspirational quadrant is blocked off and colored outside the lines. The all caps, san serif Critical Axis word mark is disrupted by an exaggerated forward leaning line of the x that descends below the baseline of the text.

Civil Rights

The Civil Rights Model amplifys the agency of disabled people who experience inequality due to discrimination. The Civil Rights model portrays disabled people as part of a powerful community with legitimate political grievances. We have civil rights (such as accessibility and fair compensation) that we fight for, just like other any other marginalized group in society.

*Our definition of Civil Rights was informed by Beth Haller’s definition in Disability & Media Matters.
