GUEST SPEAKER: HEATHER McCAIN
- INTRODUCTION TO DISABILITY JUSTICE!
Heather McCain is Executive Director of Citizens for Accessible Neighbourhoods, a non-profit they founded in 2005. Heather’s personal experiences with multiple types of disabilities, inaccessibility, and ableism has led them to become a well-known and respected speaker, advocate, educator, and activist, working with a variety of companies, cities, and non-profits to confront the issues that face disabled people. Recognizing that the disability community is comprised of people with many intersecting identities, Heather is committed to cross-movement organizing and working to ensure that the entire disabled person is considered. Heather also facilitates Qmunity’s group Chronically Queer, a support group for queer folk who have chronic health conditions.
