Storyteller. Activist. Change-maker.
IN THE NEWS
My name is Lucy (she/they). I am a multiply and dynamically Disabled speaker, writer, activist, and change-maker. Whether through writing, speaking, or teaching, advancing the principles of the disability justice movement underlies all of my endeavors.
I graduated from the University of Virginia in May 2017 with a B.A. in Anthropology and Global Development Studies. After acquiring my disability during my final year of school, I realized the stark inequalities between how I was treated before and after becoming disabled. Determined to make forward progress and a meaningful impact in this sphere, I decided to turn my passion into a career by attending law school.
As a Root-Tilden-Kern Scholar at the New York University School of Law, I worked toward the visibility and acceptance of disabled people in the legal field. Now, as a legal fellow at the American Civil Liberties Union's Disability Rights Program, my work focuses on the intersection of disability justice, policing, and abolition. I look forward to gaining the tools I need to promote true equality for people with disabilities in the eyes of the law and society alike.
