Click here to order FACT Oregon’s 2017 calendar, “Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover” – only $25 (including shipping)!
This project was born from the reality people experiencing disability face: being judged by their appearances, leading others to mistakenly presume their abilities, interests, and personalities. FACT wanted to break this stereotype by photographing people with disabilities posing with another often-misjudged population: motorcycle club members!
This calendar is perfect for your family, extended family, school staff, and professionals who work with people experiencing disability. Raise disability awareness this holiday season with FACT Oregon’s “Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover” calendar!
Why is this calendar important?
- Calendars do more than give our lives structure; they give us a beautiful image to focus on as we start our day. This calendar will help your family, friends, school staff, and colleagues start the day with the knowledge that they can make a difference in their language, attitude, and demeanor towards all the people they encounter that day.
- This calendar is a visual reminder that disability is a natural part of the human experience and a wonderful aspect of human diversity that does not call for labeling or prejudging.
- Calendars have always been a part of people’s day-to-day activities. However, these days it seems like we need them more than ever to finetune our busy lives and choreograph our dynamic schedules.
We are grateful to Ben Wood Photography and Anna’s Photography who donated their time and services for this one-of-a-kind promotion. We’d also like to thank Team Latus Harley-Davidson & Triumph for providing the Harley bikes and apparel, and local motorcycle enthusiasts along with Portland Beard Company for posing with families.
