Waiting to be called for our appointment at our local disability non-profit, a few thoughts arose about this way of organizing our community. Strangely, we began to have some criticisms of how the non-profit model works.
Naomi Ortiz, formerly with the Disability Activist Collective, joins Eddie Ytuarte and Adrienne Lauby for the hearty discussion.
And we’ll take some of your calls at (510) 848-4425.
