Dessa Cosma is executive director of Detroit Disability Power, a Ford grantee, working to build the organizing power of the disability community. If you’re working on economic justice but aren’t including a focus on disability, she explains, you’re leaving out the most marginalized people.

“People with disabilities are some of the most impoverished people in the United States. We typically live below the poverty line and because of lack of access to education and jobs, we will remain there unless we do something about it.”

In the United States, there is upwards of a 70 percent unemployment rate in disability communities. This number is a direct result of unjust systems that limit access to education, jobs, housing, and transport for disabled people.

Dessa asks us to reimagine these systems so that, together, we can create a future of work that is beneficial for everyone.
