Disability Culture, Accessibility, Disability Rights, Criticism, Education, Feminism, Disability I am a multiply disabled late diagnosed autistic woman who works with children (both autistic and non autistic) full time. I am passionate about the exposure of the ABA industry (as well as the autism industrial complex as a whole), and disability justice in general.
Media, Books, Politics, History, Feminism, Race, Disability, Technology I am a recent graduate of Ithaca College and a journalist with an eclectic interest in politics, culture, business, tech, or any other area with stories waiting to be told. I have written for multiple publications, including Space Channel, The Drum and News Bling, and I have a blog exhibiting some political pieces of mine. I lost half of my vision about five years ago and have only worked harder since. I find that my impairment actually gives me a leg up in interviews as sources are more willing to let their guard down.

Books, Ethics, Disability Culture, Disability Travis Sackett is resilience personified. Having overcome an abusive childhood, Travis went to college to study criminal justice, hoping to become an agent for change. While fulfilling this role, he was jaded by severe corruption in the system. During this time, Travis sustained an injury while training, resulting in an opioid addiction that led him to a life of crime. Through the help of his canine companion, he pulled himself up and out of the mud and began living his life again. As a fully disabled individual, Travis refused to be held back by circumstances. He persevered and decided to share his story in his memoir My Life with Karma to increase empathy toward often-ignored populations that are forgotten or left without a voice.

Pop Culture, Books, Art, Music, Politics, Philosophy, Feminism Hi, I am an Autistic Catalan polyglot artist and writer. Fluent in Catalan, Spanish, French, Italian, English and Romanian. I articulate postcoloniality from my Catalan, neurodiverse, worker and non-binary conditions; “four times a rebel” as poet Maria-Mercè Marçal would say. I use materials such as the literary and political –bodies without a narrative, narratives for bodies. I essay my art to generate concrete impacts; as we need to, in my opinion, go further from the strictly aesthetical practice: artists owe to society as much as society owes to the arts.
