Disabled Writers is a resource to help editors connect with disabled writers and journalists, and journalists connect with disabled sources. Our goal is specifically to promote paid opportunities for multiply marginalized members of the disability community, and to encourage editors and journalists to think of disabled people for stories that stretch beyond disability issues. 

 

In Memoriam: Carrie Ann Lucas

Image: Carrie wearing blue and teal cat eye glasses, curly hair, a blue dress, long necklace, and a multicolored blue and teal jacket. Carrie's trach and ventilator tubing are pictured, along with portions of her wheelchair headrest.

Carrie Ann Lucas was a powerhouse of the disability community who will be sorely missed as an advocate, activist, parent, and community member. You can learn more about her death — precipitated by health insurance denials and delays in access to care — from her colleagues at Not Dead Yet.
