💖 My thesis was published in @journalautism today! 💖



We wanted to see if an intervention targeting autism knowledge and familiarity in non-autistic (NA) adults could reduce implicit and explicit biases towards autism. 1/15

900,000 people are filing for unemployment.

The care economy is one of the fastest growing parts of our workforce.

316 days have passed with NO funding to support the home care workforce.

@POTUS this helps fight the pandemic AND boosts the economy.

This post Trump period will be filled to the brim with the cognitive dissonance of the white establishment & people claiming that Trump came outta nowhere while demanding we find common ground with white supremacists.

BREAKING: Today’s celebration ain’t over yet, Biden admin just announced a 100 day moratorium on deportation. We made this happen!! #Undeniable Immigrant youth traveled to Iowa back in 2019 to make this demand of candidate Joe Biden, and today we delivered. More details soon.

Hope is like glimpsing a deer across a road.

You know it won’t last.
You know the sight wasn’t arranged just for you, that it isn’t nature’s message of perfect wholeness.

Yet... you know it is forever. It’s all of these things.

Sometimes truth is in surrendering to the moment.

I am so privileged to share that at 12:01 pm today, I joined the Biden-Harris Administration. I will be serving as the Principal Deputy Administrator at the Administration for Community Living in HHS. 1/

For those that don’t know @AlisonBarkoff was one of the key folks engaging in every major fight of the last four years. Her leadership will be so important at ACL and broader HHS. #AccessToJoe

I hope hearing people who are trying to educate folks on sign language shown during the inauguration are aware Andrea Hall is a CODA [hearing child of a deaf adult] whose parent went to a deaf school in Georgia.

Find a new framework to critique.

Quoted @Oprah

I have never been prouder to see another young woman rise! Brava Brava, @TheAmandaGorman! Maya Angelou is cheering—and so am I.

Thank you! I would be nowhere without the women whose footsteps I dance in. While reciting my poem, I wore a ring with a caged bird—a gift from @Oprah for the occasion , to symbolize Maya Angelou, a previous inaugural poet. Here’s to the women who have climbed my hills before.

A note on hope:
1. It is a practice
2. If you see someone feeling it, don't try to take it from them unless it is truly unjustified
3. If someone's hope is misdirected, help them redirect it
4. Organizing is hopeful activity

fellow white people, your homework for the first week of this administration is to practice learning how to be happy with incremental victories while still sitting with the discomfort of marginalized folks expressing their anger and dissatisfaction

You can’t bring up Trump mocking a disabled reporter in every “how did he ever get into power?” debate when you mock him for how he holds a glass of water or how he walks down a ramp.

When the left is ableist but uses it as a convenient argument, we have no hope for the right.

Either we all have human rights, or none of us do. There isn't a middle ground on that, actually. #Neurodiversity
