Amy Litzinger, MATS

The photo features me celebrating at my Seminary graduation, dark hair, brown eyes, olive skin, black cap and gown; my master's hood shows red on the left side of the photo and white on the right side of the photo. I am sitting in my black power wheelchair, on a patio that is red brick, leaning on my left elbow, turning my head to my right. From the crowd behind me, there is a woman in a blue blouse with sandy hair, and on the other side of the photo is a woman in a blue dress with black hair.

I join the Disability March because I care about access to a full life, with inclusion in society. I was lucky to be educated under IDEA, and want people who follow me to have this same opportunity.  Our experience of disability and inclusion adds to disability culture and the culture at large. I believe we have unique perspectives to offer!
Amy Litzinger is a graduate of Southwestern University with degrees in political science and English, and of Austin Presbyterian Seminary with a MATS degree.   Currently, she is a public policy specialist for Texas Parent to Parent and an intern with Easter Seals, serving the disability community.
