THE REASON WHY
I WORK AT THE ILRC
I have always had a personal and professional interest in disability studies and advocacy because it is one axis that reveals and challenges assumptions relating to our interactions and structures. And it is great to think about these things, for sure, but you also need to put the work in, and that’s what I’m here to do.
