Action Alert! Invisible disabilities under fire!

In the last day or so, a discovery was shared on social media that a company in Colorado was issued the trademarked phrase: "invisible disabilities", the disability community is up in arms about it.  Invisible disabilities are a part of our identities and not something that should be branded as a consumer good.

I urge you to contact your congressman and senators.  I just telephoned my mine to bring the following issue to their attention: the phrase "invisible disabilities" has been trademark by Invisible Disabilities Association - US Trademark Registration No. 4315808, in April 2013.

Please contact your congressman and senators at: U.S. Capitol Switchboard (202) 224-3121.
