Annie Segarra

The Future is Accessible

From coming out in a Latinx household, learning to love her body within the context of Body Dysmorphia Disorder recovery, and losing abilities due to a degenerative disease called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, Annie's life experiences have directly led to her advocating for equal rights, equal access, and intersectional activism. What does accessibility mean beyond our first thoughts of ramps, captions, and audio descriptions? Annie discusses her journey to launching the "The Future is Accessible" campaign and how you can get involved and take action.
