Ableism Separated Disabled People from Autonomy: Kelly Buckland and Vilissa Thompson

Kelly Buckland, Executive Director of the National Council on Independent Living and Vilissa Thompson, founder of Ramp Your Voice! join us in DC to discuss the movement for independent living.

How can we make this not a conversation about ability, but accessibility, one that is intersectional and empowering?
