Judy Heumann was a true Civil Rights champion, setting up the longest take-over of government offices, taking on two presidents and successfully spearheading the campaign to have discrimination against people with disabilities included in the American Bill of Rights. She fully believed that if any group were left downtrodden and without rights, then no-one had full rights, working with LGBT+ groups and the Black Panthers as well as spending her whole life advocating for people with disabilities.
As our song, Crip Camp, says:
Judy was a punk, she wouldn’t play by the rules
Wouldn’t be constrained by society’s views
Wouldn’t let a twisted metal birdcage wheelchair keep her down.
