Can technology advance society if it doesn’t include all of society? This week, we talk with three disability justice activists who have ideas about how tech can ensure design, technology, and art are accessible and equitable. Not just ideas, they’re doing it, and they are sparking a movement.  Music Featured:  “Feel It” by Bosq featured on the ‘Love and Resistance’ album courtesy of Ubiquity Records.

Guests:
Laurel Lawson, Chief Technology Officer, CyCore Systems;   
Chancey Fleet, Data And Society Fellow
Vilissa Thompson, Founder and CEO, Ramp Your Voice
