Speaking Engagements

I speak to diverse audiences about disability justice and modern disability activism, with a focus on how to apply the principles of these movements to our work in public space today.

Audience members have said:

Most of us are hyper focused on modern accessibility and aren't very educated on it's beginnings. I learned a lot, the origin of the curb cut has gotten me curious on other origin stories.

Your work is incredibly inspiring, so important, and I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to attend and hear more about your work… I left feeling energized and inspired by the work I do.
