Ableism and racism in law enforcement can put Black people with disabilities especially at risk of police violence. While there is no federal data on police violence against people with disabilities, experts believe that up to half of people who are killed by police have a disability. We hear from two Black people with disabilities, Kason O’Connor and Babatunde Azubuike, about their experience with police, the intersection of ableism and racism, and what changes they want to see.
