Why I do this work: As a writer and artist committed to working toward a more socially just world, accessibility is extremely important to me. Universal access to learning, to education, and to the resources that school has to offer are deeply important, and I’m thrilled to be bringing my values to support Bellwether’s powerful and critical work.
