Although there are 235 disabled members of Equity, non-disabled actors still portray characters with disabilities.

We feel that this practice should be consigned to the past.

It is insulting and patronising. 

It is the blacking up of the new millennium.

The last discrimination, which is still applauded and rewarded, is that of an actor “playing disabled.” It’s the surest path to an Oscar that an actor can follow.
