In Memory of Judy Heumann: Researching Disability from Multiple Lenses: USA & Bolivia

April 14, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

A unique virtual seminar on the history of the Global Disability Rights Movement and how that connects to the present.

Jeny is a junior studying at the University of Vermont, pursuing a degree in Middle Level Education and Special Education. In the past years, she has been involved with UVM’s club Women’s Ice Hockey team and the UVM Art Club, where she can share her love for athletics and the arts. While learning to become a history teacher, she has learned more about activism—past and present—across various identities and issues. She gained an interest in the
intersections between historical and current disability rights movements
across the globe.

WHY? Jeny’s passion to become a history teacher has inspired her to dive deeper into the history of the Disability Rights Movement. She believes if
you are connected with the past, you will better understand how we came to be where we are now in the present; as well as where we will be in the future. This presentation will teach listeners about the history of the Disability Rights Movement and how it has influenced the movements and protests we see all over the world today.
