46 Access is Love with Alice Wong

Join us in talking to disability activist and media maker Alice Wong about building media that values accessibility, disability as a political and socio-cultural identity, and her journey in founding the Disability Visibility Project. We also reflect on the continuing work of Access is Love, a campaign that aims to help build a world where accessibility is understood as an act of love instead of a burden or an afterthought.
