I'm home from DC. Amazing time at the NARPA Conference: Beyond CIT Training session I helped run, but mostly honored to meet so many advocates and experts doing the work in the trenches. Special thanks to the folks at Bazelon who co-presented with me (and for everything else they do).
One other key post - I wrote a long post on How Not To Advocate. Too often disability rights folks - especially white, upper class ones, advocate by saying, "what about my issue!" instead of "here's how our issues overlap and intersect." It doesn't work.
