Valerie Slater: Disability Rights in Black 2020

It’s day 12 of our #DisabilityRightsInBlack series and we are ready to rise up with Valerie Slater! Valerie is currently the Executive Director of RISE for Youth where she strives each day to dismantle the school to prison pipeline and its devastating effects on young people of color. She also worked to protect the rights of children with disabilities in community, residential and juvenile justice facilities during her time with the disAbility Law Center of Virginia.

Check out this motivational message from Valerie about the power we all possess to RISE and thrive!
