Written Testimony

I, Jensen Caraballo, am humbled to share my journey as a staunch advocate for disability rights and justice. Living with Spinal Muscular Atrophy type 2, depression, and anxiety disorder has not only shaped my life but has fueled my passion to fight against the dangerous implications of assisted suicide laws.


Originally from Puerto Rico and now residing in Rochester, New York, I have been actively involved in shedding light on the potential harm and risks associated with laws that can affect the lives of those living with disabilities. My insights are not limited to personal experience; they are a testament to the resilience and courage it takes to challenge societal perceptions and norms.


As an advocate, I've used various platforms to engage with my audience and share my unique perspectives on subjects like disability, kink, and wrestling. My presence on Twitter and participation in projects related to disability justice have not only allowed me to connect with a broader audience but have also helped me inspire others who may be facing similar challenges.


I'm honored to be on the Board of Directors of the SPM Disability Justice Fund and the Consumer Directed Action of New York. Serving on the Advisory Group for IDD Advocate Corps at the Institute for Exceptional Care has given me a platform to contribute to policy-making and promote an inclusive environment for all.


My journey has not been without its challenges, but I am a firm believer in the power of empathy, awareness, and collaboration. My advocacy work extends beyond social media, as I've been featured in videos and articles that highlight my experiences and efforts to create understanding within the community.


In conclusion, the path I've chosen is not merely a personal crusade; it's a calling to uplift others and to create a society where everyone, regardless of their disabilities, has the opportunity to thrive and lead a dignified life. I, Jensen Caraballo, stand committed to this cause and will continue to work tirelessly to bring about change.


Please feel free to reach out if you would like to learn more about my advocacy work or if you have any questions. Together, we can make a difference.
