I've been engaging in advocacy issues for over 10 years. I started advocating for myself first. When I was 15 years old, I was forced to live in an institution. I started advocating for my civil rights around that time. I was finally set free when I turned 21 years old.


I've been engaging in grassroots advocacy ever since I was set free from the institution. I've engaged with a grassroots advocacy group called ADAPT. I did this for several years. I still engage occasionally.


I want to take my advocacy to the next level. I want to start my own advocacy organization that fights back against the ableist barriers designed to keep us separated and isolated. I believe we can reamagine our future by using our imagination to the best of our ability.


I'd like to show other Disabled Folks how to be an advocate. I would like to establish a strong group of advocates that build a movement towards a world that is completely accessible to every single Disabled Person no matter what their conditions are. I would like to establish a movement made of Disabled and nondisabled folks.
