Gary Karp Q&A

Gary Karp and Alex JacksonFollowing up from last week’s post, I had the opportunity to speak with Gary Karp and asked him about the importance of advocacy. He said we should not forget the history of disability awareness and remember key leaders like Justin Dart and Judy Heumann. We should continue promoting disability awareness to improve the lives of people living with disabilities.

When he’s not writing books and speaking to students, he is practicing his juggling skills. Watch the video below or click this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5802DiJ_vQ.

About Tuesday Talk With Alex

Born in Charleston, SC, I was injured in a motor vehicle accident when I was nine months old. I acquired a C5-C6 spinal cord injury. I'm now 30 years old and I do not let my disability deter me from acheiving my goals and enjoying life. I will be sharing my experience of living with a spinal cord injury.
