Rolling Warrior: The Incredible, Sometimes Awkward, True Story of a Rebel Girl on Wheels Who Helped Spark a Revolution,
by Judith Heumann with Kristen Joiner.
All grades will have discussions and activities related to the book when we come back to school after the summer break, and then the author, Judy Heumann, will make a virtual author visit on August 25 during WSA's Fall Gathering!
Judy Heumann, one of the most influential disability rights activists in US history, tells her story of fighting to belong in school and society - battling for equal access in an unequal world.
Heumann was the driving force behind a rousing 24-day San Francisco sit-in by disabled activists in 1973 that forced the passage of regulations supporting disability rights in federally funded programs.
At age 41, Heumann finally became an “equal citizen” in 1990 when, through her own and others' tenacity, the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) was passed. She then went on to fight for disability rights worldwide.
