F*** Stairs

In 2018, disabled students from the University of Washington, created the first-ever F*** Stairs campaign.


The campaign ranged from a few weeks, to a full month, where able-bodied people and disabled allies would pledge to use only accessible pathways in solidarity with wheelchair users and other people with mobility impairments.


Now Crip Riot aims to bring the award-winning F*** Stairs campaign to colleges, universities and organizations across the country. Click below to join the movement.
