Progressive activists have been increasingly thoughtful about ensuring meaningful representation of marginalized communities. But disability activists have noticed that disability representation is an issue that remains underrepresented in progressive spaces.

In the September 7 episode of “The Progressive Happy Hour,” Drew Courtney and Diallo Brooks talk to Rachna Sizemore Heizer, disability rights activist and board member of Virginia Autism Project, about the fight for a more inclusive progressive movement that holistically incorporates disability rights and issues.
