I affirm democratic and community practices. #FeminsmMatters #Intersectionality #ReproductiveJustice #DemocrayMatters #UAW2865 I’m a PhD student in Sociology with an emphasis in Feminist Studies at UCSB, with ADHD, and a proud union member…

While I am not disabled, I am a caregiver for both my father and grandma. I understand what it is to be at the whims or a disease or to structure life around a disability. When I realized my father’s illness was going to prevent me from getting to Washington, I was crushed. So, I…

I’m joining because I want to fight for justice and peace. If we can act together fiercely in love and in humble respect then we will be doing the right thing. I’m a survivor of abuse and violence and I have worked in the battered women’s movement. My PTSD is bad right now. Being in…

Why I want to “march.”–  As a nation need to continue funding medical and stem cell research. The ACA has been very important for those with my disability- hypertrophic cardiomyopaty. Luckily I have insurance but will count on medicare at some point. I worry about my pre-existing condition! In addition, I spent my career as…

I am handicapped. Donald Trump is a disgrace. He cares for no one but himself. He has brought out the  vile hate lurking in America. I just hope the people wake up soon!

Caitlin and Forest

Our newest president has neglected to take into consideration the needs of the disabled population. Unfortunately we are an easily forgotten minority group and it is time that our wellbeing is taken seriously and addressed directly by the people in Washington. I’m a 26 year old, professional patient. I’ve had well over 100 surgeries so…

As a member of a sexual minority with a history of mental health issues, married to a disabled man, my first and most important priorities are as follows: Single-payer health care in my home state of California, if not nationwide. Protections for the LGBTQ community in health care, housing, jobs, parental rights, and education. Protections…
