The Alliance Then and Now: A Discussion on Centering Multiply-Marginalized People with Disabilities

Led by and for multiply-marginalized and non-speaking disabled people, The Alliance for Citizen Directed Supports was founded in 2016 to support people with disabilities to create life journeys of their own making. Throughout the past six years, we’ve asked ourselves how can we disrupt institutionalization and the institutional bias, especially as it impacts multiply-marginalized disabled people.

Priya Penner from The Alliance led an hour-long discussion on how we collectively can ensure that multiply-marginalized people with disabilities have the same access to self-direction as their white counterparts.
