Our Resistance: Stories of Disability Rights Activists

Publications Human Rights Defenders


Documenting Disability Rights activists’ stories of resistance is a deeply political act. Introducing Our Resistance: Stories of Disability Rights Activists, a feminist storytelling project that tells the beautiful, rich, diverse and unfiltered stories of Anisie Byukusenge, Aminata, Crystal Asige, Elizabeth Patricia Pérez, Estefanía Cubillos Nova, Indira Azucena Vargas, Mariana Veliz Matijasevi, Nur Matta, and Monica Yeanie Ghaliwa: nine Disability Rights activists working to transform and remake the world into one that honours their full and rich humanity, experiences, and that is rooted in Disability Justice. This storytelling effort was seeded and curated in partnership with Stories of Girls’ Resistance, a global feminist storytelling project dedicated to documenting and amplifing the invisible and untold stories of girls, women, and non-binary people’s resistance.
