Disability Advocacy: A Deep Dive – Pushing Limits – June 7, 2024

Sophia Lee-Park

What is a disability advocate? How does advocacy look in this day and age with the role that media and smartphones play? How does someone advocate effectively while simultaneously negotiating and managing their own unique identities? On Friday’s program of Pushing Limits, we answer all these questions and more as we take a deep dive into what it means to be a disability advocate.

Joining us is Sophia Lee-Park, a disability justice advocate and accessibility educator. Sophia earned her bachelor’s degree in sociology from UCSB and recently graduated from USC with a master’s degree in post secondary affairs and schooling administration. Pulling from her experiences as a person with a physical and a developmental disability, Sophia shares her thoughts on the topic of advocacy.


This program was produced and edited by Dominick Trevethan with help from Denny Daughters. Additionally, this program originally aired in a longer form on the podcast, The Disability Myth.
