This week we're learning about disability rights and how to be a better ally to the disabled, with activist and consultant Alice Wong. Listen to hear Alice talk about the unique perspectives that disabled people bring to the conversation, what non-disabled people can do to promote and protect equality, and why Crip Camp is essential viewing.

In addition to being the Founder and Director of the Disability Visibility Project, she is also the host of the Disability Visibility podcast, and recently published the book Disability Visibility: First-Person Stories From the 21st Century.
