Today’s Pro Bono cartoon. Kelly Vincent’s Pro Bono News post ‘The soft bigotry of low expectations’ was the inspiration. She writes

‘It is safe to say that politically I don’t have much in common with George W. Bush, former president of the United States, but he used a phrase to describe institutional discrimination and bias that seems as apt today as when he spoke it, back in 2000. He described it as the soft bigotry of low expectations. Even today in 2017, it is a real thing and it is forming a barrier around people with disability every day and in all aspects of their lives’.

Kelly Vincent MLC is the youngest woman ever elected to an Australian parliament, the first elected on a disability rights platform and leader of the Dignity Party in the South Australian Legislative Council.
