Invisible disability hate crime is on the increase and many disabled people fear leaving their homes or even using the priority parking spaces and disabled access toilets they are legally entitled to. Invisibly disabled public transport passengers are being accosted for using priority seating and made to feel ashamed for not giving them up when they have every right to use them.
The main aim of this project is to use visual communication to raise awareness of invisible disabilities, and the legitimate right of the invisibly disabled to access priority accommodations under the current symbol, without having to constantly verify they are “disabled enough”. (Kattari, Olzman, & Hanna, 2018, p. 486).
