How do we honor the our disabled elders & ancestors?

When I first found out that Carrie Ann Lucas @DisabilityCubed died 3 days ago, it was painful. Like countless of sick, chronically ill, and disabled people, she died at the hands of the medical industrial complex.
Carrie Ann created disability culture, family, and community. She lifted people up and defended their rights. She fought the system with every tool at her disposal. She loved her friends and family fiercely.
Stories can carry our history, joy, love & grief into the future. We can preserve Carrie Ann's crip wisdom by sharing stories about her. I'm delighted to publish 2 guest pieces for @DisVisibility by disabled parents about Carrie Ann, a badass unapologetic queer disabled mother.
