button, Not Dead Yet

Description (Brief)
Pin-back buttons serve many purposes. They are efficient advertising vehicles, handy for fund-raising in support of a cause, concise statements of a person’s beliefs, a form of educational outreach, and convenient ice-breakers for conversation. NMAH has several hundred pin-back buttons related to disability, including this one. Disability rights activists formed Not Dead Yet in 1996 in response to Jack Kevorkian’s campaign for assisted suicide and to protest euthanasia of people with disabilities.
