The New Year is upon us and 2017 does not look all charming and bright.Â Like others
of good will, the disability community is scrambling to adjust to the new president.
We’re applying advice from former Congressional staffers (and that guy we know down the street.)Â We’re talking about organizing ourselves more tightly like Alameda’s Senior Services Coalition has done. Â We’re looking for better ways to make alliances with other groups.Â We’re laughing as much as we possibly can.Â We’re overwhelmed, but hopeful.
We talk about all of this and more on today’s program.Â Co-Hosts Sheela Gunn-Cushman and Mark Romoser are in conversation with Oakland disability and senior rights advocate Michelle Rousey.
