An amazing disability rights leader, and strong feminist, Judy Heumann, passed away at 2 PM EST Saturday, March 4, 2023. I honor Judy’s leadership, accomplishments, and memory.  

Judy also recognized the important role of disabled women and girls in both the disability rights and women’s rights movements and worked to advance these intersectional issues in the United States and around the world.   

As we remember our fearless disability human rights leader and strong advocate for the rights of disabled women and girls, please watch my Facebook Live conversation with Judy Heumann below or at  Thank you Judy for all of your work and passion, we honor your memory and will keep your work moving forward!
