A Conversation with International Disability Rights Advocate, Judith Heumann

Thursday, October 21 Educational Session 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. 
“A Conversation with International Disability Rights Advocate, Judith Heumann”

Judith "Judy" Heumann is an internationally recognized leader in the Disability Rights Independent Living Movement. Her work with a wide range of activist organizations, including the Berkeley Center for Independent Living and the American Association of People with Disabilities, Non-Government Organizations (NGOs), and governments since the 1970s has contributed greatly to the development of human rights legislation and policy benefiting people with disabilities. She has advocated for disability rights at home and abroad, serving in the Clinton and Obama administrations and as the World Bank’s first adviser on disability and development.

Judy is featured in the Netflix documentary, Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution, nominated for an Oscar in the documentary category and has recently co-authored, “Being Heumann: An Unrepentant Memoir of a Disability Rights Activist.”

Join us as we speak to one the most influential disability rights activists in US history as she tells her personal story of fighting for the right to receive an education, have a job, and just be human. We will explore what advocacy means today and what part we all play in helping to make real a world in which we all belong.
