The Independent Living Movement got people out of institutions and inspired many of us to believe we could live without doctors, parents and others defining our lives. But, no one is completely independent and, while it might feel good to talk about independence, as a final life goal it leaves much to be desired.
Join A.J. Withers of the blog, “If I Can’t Dance, Is It Still My Revolution?” for a discussion of how interdependence is a more accurate description of our lives — and how that works out in the day-to-day.
Produced and hosted by Adrienne Lauby. Eddie Ytaurte, co-host.
A.J. Withers is a disabled, queer and trans anti-poverty activist living in Toronto. A proponent of radical disability theory and politics, A.J. is the author of Disability Politics and Theory.
