“You know, I want to leave a legacy of disabled people knowing that we are powerful and beautiful because of who we are, not despite it,” Stacey Milbern Park
The whole world is mourning the recent murder of George Floyd. The disability community is no exception.
We were already grieving the loss of Stacey Milbern Park, a transformative activist who died of complications following surgery on May 19, her 33rd birthday. Stacey’s activism fused disability with social justice, particularly for LGBT people of color.
Dolores Tejada and Jay Salazar, who both knew Stacey well, will join Mark Romoser to look back at Stacey’s life, discuss what she would be doing in this critical moment, and hopefully figure out how to do it ourselves.
