Always give a cost of living increase — yes, especially after 2020
By Chris Talbot-Heindl, communications professional

Can you believe that cost of living increases aren’t always a given? Some organizations will skip giving these increases during lean years, essentially making their employees take a pay cut, which disproportionately affects employees without generational wealth (like BIPOCs, LGBTIQA2+ folx, and disabled folx).

In their essay, Chris makes an indisputable case for giving cost of living increases every year, no matter what. It’s the equitable thing to do! Read their essay!

5 anti-ableist practices that any organization can embrace now!

Sometimes, well-meaning organizations that purport to be disability-focused are actually some of the worst offenders when it comes to ableism and its impacts.

Certain ableist practices can be hard to spot, so Jessie does all of us a real solid by breaking down what good practices should look like. Before donating to, supporting, and promoting the work of certain disability-focused nonprofits, be sure they pass Jessie’s five points!
