In Visibility Today: Disability Blogger and Activist Shona Louise

“We see it time and time again. It’s disabled people helping disabled people”.

Shona says this midway through our interview. She means it in response to the amount of support she received from the disability community when she was forced to crowdfund for her powerchair last year, but her statement could also be true of the many people she herself has helped, over many years writing and advocating for members of this same community.
