About

The Divas with Disabilities Project

A creative extension of LEGGTalk, Inc. which transforms Lessons of Empowerment into Achieving Goals and Greatness.

We like to use this phrase a lot: “Showing Up Unapologetically.”

Vision

Our Mission

To help shape the perception of what “disability” looks like by promoting  women of color through various media platforms. 

Core Values

  • Diversity and Inclusion
  • Empowerment
  • Image Transformation
  • Integrity
  • Perseverance
  • Social Justice
  • Unity

Global Perspective

This campaign, started by Dr. Donna R. Walton, Founder & CEO of LEGGTalk, Inc., is bringing together women of color with disabilities throughout the world to reject and discredit stereotyped imagery historically portrayed by mass media.

Our movement is growing. What started as a small Facebook group in 2012 grew into a strong campaign reaching thousands of women with disabilities worldwide.
