How did you get involved with the Independent Living Movement?
I have worked at the intersections of disability advocacy and anti-violence organizing for several years. I joined the Independent Living Movement because I believe in collective justice, liberation, ease, and abundance for all people with disabilities, and particularly for queer and trans-Black and Indigenous disabled communities of color. The Independent Living Movement nourishes this reimagining and reclaiming of different ways to be in this world.
I love writing short stories, eating oysters, reading critical theory, and building fires in my fireplace.
