Voices of Disability Pride

Voices of Disability Pride

“Voices of Disability Pride” is series of profiles of leaders in the disability community. Each profile is a chance to hear about someone’s personal advocacy journey, the skills that helped them succeed and what advice they have for people new to the disability community. This series airs occasionally within WBFO's Disabilities Beat segment.
  • This week, we share the first installment of a new series of profiles of leaders in the disability community, called “Voices of Disability Pride.” Each of these profiles is a chance to hear about someone’s advocacy journey, the skills that helped them succeed and what advice they have for people new to the disability community. This week we’re highlighting Michael Rogers, a prominent self-advocate in Buffalo and Regional Organizer for the Self Advocacy Association of New York State.
