Join us in talking to disability activist and media maker Alice Wong about building media that values accessibility, disability as a political and socio-cultural identity, and her journey in founding the Disability Visibility Project. We also reflect on the continuing work of Access is Love, a campaign that aims to help build a world where accessibility is understood as an act of love instead of a burden or an afterthought. Access full resources, notes, and the transcript at http://www.healingjustice.org/podcast/46
In the next episode, we share a conversation with members of our volunteer Access Team, reflecting on the labor and lessons of their work to share our complete transcript collection and the continuing work to build access here at the podcast. Find that episode here & learn more about our access commitments here at the podcast.
