The Judith Campaign

The Judith Campaign is a communications campaign building awareness and acceptance of the diversity and contributions of DC’s community of people with disabilities and their families, care partners, and supporters. It honors the life and work of Judith Heumann, who taught us the value of creating space for disabled people to share their stories with the world. The world is a beautiful place where many people can express themselves, and we want to amplify those voices and honor everyone's truth.

This project will spotlight people discussing topics related to:

Justice for all
Uncomfortable conversations: honoring that advocacy can be hard
Direct support and the care workforce
Through our eyes, honoring individual stories
How can we create the world we want?


We will post videos, images, and information here to advance this campaign. Check back regularly for more content!
